Real South Cooking, by Patricia B. Mitchell, is a little treasure chest of genuine, old-fashioned Southern recipes (no grits with pine nuts and salsa here!). An entertaining text tells about the author's personal food history, i.e., stuff she ate as a child. The funny anecdotes, both Patricia's and those of other people, make this book fun to read. Such recipes as “Pan Fried Chicken,” “A Mess Ah Greens,” “Pittsylvania County Cracklin' Bread,” and “Black & Bess Chocolate Pie” will satisfy anyone wistfully longing for Southern food.
