The history of the American South, while relatively new, has already showed that the variety of influences-- from the British colonies to the urbanization of major cities-- all left their impact in meaningful and sometimes complicated ways. As DeBolt indicates, this is evident in the food traditions of Georgia, where both topographical limitations and encounters of different groups of people have produced a rich tradition that is both delicious and inspirational.
Some of my favorite cookbooks focus on Southern food, and Georgia Entertains is no exception. DeBolt shares recipes that are staples of Southern cuisine as well as her own creations using classic Georgia ingredients and methods of food preparation. Altogether, this cookbook is an absolute delight!
