5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Cook Book! 28 Nov 2011
I came to know about Paula Deen through another recipe book I own, Jamie's America. When reading past reviews on Amazon before purchasing the book, one review mentioned that Paula Deen's recipes are similar to a section within Jamie Oliver's book and since I have fallen in love with Jamie's America I decided to go ahead and buy Paula's latest book, The Southern Cooking Bible.

As mentioned in the first review, there are few pictures in the book. However I find the font, layout and colours of the book to be friendly and approachable, whereas some recipe books without pictures can seem slightly clinical looking (I'm thinking of Nigella's How To Eat as an example). Paula starts each recipe with a short blurb about either the origin of the dish or a family memory which gives the book a friendly feel and is great if you (like me) are interested in the history of food. She also introduces each chapter with details on Southern food traditions.

I'm no expert on Southern cooking but I imagine that this book contains every important Southern dish in existence! It really is a bible and contains recipes from breakfasts to dinner party food, mac and cheese to pumpkin pie.....the list is endless.

The measures are in American so I bought a set of cup measures for around 3- problem solved.

It's a great book which I highly recommend for anybody with an interest in cooking and traditional American food!

4.0 out of 5 stars Down South 14 Oct 2011
By wogan
Paul Deen has put out her Southern Cooking Bible. It is a nice size, almost square. One wonders as you look through this what Melissa Clark did, she is given no credit for anything, except in the acknowledgments for helping to shape the book and on the cover.
There are repeats from Deen's other cookbooks, especially `The Lady and Sons' and even some that were familiar from the Deen Brothers grilling book. There are 2 sections of 8 pictures, other than that, no recipes are pictured. There are some line drawings to diagram such as; rolling a jelly roll, and the chicken on the beer can. There are hints on many pages about sauces used in grilling, flipping fish, and tartar sauce. One of the hints is confusing though - she says to get shells out of crabmeat put it in the oven and the shells will turn red - most of the shells in crabmeat that are bothersome are the inner shells which are white and transparent and will definitely not turn red.
She also has one or two sentences about each recipe and a few pages explaining each section of food. An introduction tells you about southern food. Her dirty rice is one of the best versions and easy too, so is her basic meat loaf, Beaufort shrimp pie, is also a winner.

Types of recipes included are; starters, salads and slaws, soups and stews, brunch, egg and cheese dishes, pasta and rice, meat, poultry, fish and shellfish, grilling and barbecue, vegetables and beans, breads, quick breads and biscuits, coffee cakes, griddle cakes, and doughnuts, pies, cobblers, and crisps, cakes, cookies and bars, puddings and frozen treats, candies, preserves and beverages, sauces, dressings and relishes.

If you want help with southern cooking this is a good resource, especially if you are a fan of Paula Deen. However there is a southern living cookbook that gives more basic recipes and different versions of many southern dishes rather than just one version of a southern dish. Both would add to a cookbook collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Southern Food 16 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Paula Deen. In this cookbook I found yet again a wealth of southern food that I loved from my childhood. Each recipe includes tips or witticisms from Paula. I love that each chapter has a personal intro with stories about Paula's family life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay for a laugh not for cooking use 23 Oct 2013

Bought this as a present for a friend. She barely uses it for cooking but rather as a humour book to laugh at the outrageously unhealthy recipes in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paula Deen 22 Jun 2013
By Sher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I don't normally buy items for a policical statement but this time I have. Paula has freedom of speech and I have the power of the buck. Today I bought this book AND a box of cheerios (in support of their ad that contains a mixed race marriage). Time for American to grow up beyond the age of ten years old, get over the polical correctness crap and get on with life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apologies TO Paula Deen 25 Jun 2013
By C. Roberton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like the last reviewer (Sher) I have purchased this book in support of Paula Deen, who has been made a scapegoat by the American public. What really gets me is the hypocrisy behind it all! We've all made mistakes, stuck our foot in our mouths, said things we wished we hadn't, wishing we'd lived up to our better selves. I don't care if she is a public figure, she's human for God's sake! We are all "public figures" in the sense that we have a circle of influence that affects the larger world and we don't really know how that influence ripples out to affect strangers. Since there seems to be a double-standard for the use of the "N" word, maybe we need a rule book on its use: e.g., whites can't use it because they have to be politically correct at all times, blacks can use it among themselves, wealthy film producers can use it and make lots of money (they get a free pass). What? No rule book? That's silly? Well then, why don't we just nix the word and be a little kinder to one another!

Also, I loved the Cheerios mixed race commercial, and I think Sher had a great idea: I'm going to buy Cheerios as well - AND donate a bunch of boxes to the local food bank!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paula is the genuine lady. 26 Jun 2013
By Robert A. Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Paula is a sinner and a lady ...and I love her. A person who throws stones at her misses the point. Paula is a REAL person.....and she is anything but a racist. I am a liberal Democrat...and Paula Deen is being falsely attacked. Her books are as great as she is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its title (for a non-cook) 12 Oct 2011
By Day of Defiance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a Southern-raised transplant to California and also not a cook. But I bought this book so that I'd have a compendium of Southern recipies to share with my California-native wife. About a year ago, I visited Paula Deen's Savannah restaurant, The Lady & Sons, and absolultely loved the food. No other celebrity chef is more closely identified with Southern cooking than the highly-commercialized Deen, so I'm accepting her authority for this "bible."

This is only the 2nd or 3rd cookbook I've ever bought in my life, so I don't have much to compare it to. But the book does what it promises and lives up to its title. After a 5-page introduction from Deen about the history and variety of Southern cuisine, the book has over 20 well-organized chapters, each specifically separated by type of dish. Most recipes take up one full page, although a few are half-a-page and others 2 pages. Some recipies have diagrams to explain certain techniques. Almost every recipe has either a "tip" from Paula that explains a particularly significant part of the recipe or offers a substitution that might suit alternative tastes. The instructions are easy-to-understand and very direct.

The recipies are not accompanied with photos of each dish. There are two sections of color photos which depict a small number of the finished dishes (with references to the page number of the corresponding recipe). This is one criticism I have of the book - I would have preferred a thicker book with glossy paper and a color photo of each completed dish on the same page as the recipe.

The book is well-made - with standard hardcover cookbook binding that makes it easy to lay open to a specific page in the kitchen. There is a standard book jacket that wouldn't withstand moisture. The hard cover is yellow and the inside print is black with orange graphics.

Celebrity autobiographies are usually ghostwritten by a real writer credited on the cover, usually in small type, with a phrase like "with Jane Doe." In this case, I don't quite understand why a co-author is credited for a cookbook - which makes me a little suspicious as to how much of this book was personally authored by Deen. But nevertheless, I'm satisfied with the book and it lives up to its claims.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Over it 26 Jun 2013
By Publius - Published on Amazon.com
Political correctness is just tyranny with manners. I'm glad her book sales soared 1300%. Where are the rappers being scrutinized for using the N word? They use it in every song, no matter what color they are, and face ZERO repercussions. It doesn't matter where you use it, saying it is bad in ANY case. The double-standard is entirely obvious, and plain wrong.

Political correctness is just tyranny with manners.
