BOOK REVIEW: "The Southern Sympathy Cookbook: Funeral Food with a Twist" by Perre Coleman Magness

Feb 09, 2018
Southerners are knoown for their hospitable generosity, and funerals in the South occupy an entire category of hospitality. Family members divvy up the duties and neighbors quickly transform into teams, deploying buttermilk biscuits ancd honey-baked hams to ease broken hearts and soothe frayed nerves. In "The Southern Sympathy Cookbook: Funeral Food with a Twist (The Countryman Press; $22.95/softcover), which features more than 50 color photographs, author Perre Coleman Magness has assembled a collection of delectable and delightful recipes that are, well, to die for! Filled with old-school, community-cookbook classic recipes and internationally inspired dishes with a nod to the New South, she has got you covered. The best part is that you don't need to wait for a funeral to try them! l

Comforting casseroles; jugs of sweet tea; creamy, cheesy potatoes -- all these foods provide sympathy and sustenance for the bereaved. "The Southern Sympathy Cookbook" also includes unexpectedly humorous obituaries and anecdotes alongside staples of Southern funerals, including Three Bean Salad; Fried Chicken, Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls, etc.

Whether feeding a congregation, delivering a meal to a friend in need, or cooking with weekday leftovers in mind, home cooks will embrace these reciopes, guaranteed to comfort and to please.
