I bought this new copy to replace the aging and falling apart original copy that my wife has had for many years.

The companion cookbook to the film!

You can look at the recipe PHOTOS I posted for this book, and see my captions right under each picture.

I never thought of any use for these pictures before, I just happened over the years to jump on my camera when a dish in the making cried: I look good, take a picture!

With over 200 recipes, this unassuming book has more recipes than Fannie Flaggs's Whistlestop Cafe cookbook (150 recipes), or Jamie Oliver's huge "America" cookbook (120 recipes) while taking up less space on your shelf.

All unassuming as it is, it is also ladled with nostalgia and enlivened with quotations thrown here and there ( lots are about friendship - the main theme of the film - such as "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life but what we give"). It's got plenty of nostalgic notes thrown in too, about people, history, etc., and B&W pictures.

I enjoyed making the recipes, it feels a bit like travelling ( I should add here that I am a European).

I read on Amazon.com that this would be the sequel to Flaggs' cookbook. I don't know; but I can tell you that many recipes overlap, and it looks to me that all the great classics such as GFTs are in both books - so if you need to choose between the 2, it might be a good bet to have the one with the most recipes. My opinion only ( Actually, me? I need to have both).

I enjoy just leafing through the book, letting the magical, exotic (Deep South) names jump up at me, evocative but mysterious at the same time ( Country ham & Red-Eye Gravy; Chewy tomato bars; Fluff; Grits; Special angel food cake; Cornbread Salad; Red Velvet Cake...); and am much reminded of this film one of my favourites, Fried Green Tomatoes.

Don't forget to play the FGT soundtrack CD while you cook for added atmosphere - at least the last and rather mystical track, "A Charge To Keep I Have"- it truly takes me back into Irondale Café's village as seen in the film!

I love, love, love this cookbook!! I crave my grandma's excellent home cooked meals and this cookbook has the recipes and advice to let you cook just like her.
Not homemade recipes. Canned and packaged items for cooking. How can they call it a cook book.
