"Jean Anderson—who understands, like Faulkner, that 'the past isn't past'—is a loving historian of the South. Her book reaches back to the American South before there was an America. I love the history and stories behind the recipes almost as much as the unique names — Great Smokies Jelly Pie, Texas Torte, Chicken Boudine — it makes this Yankee want to get into the kitchen and start entertaining Southern style."

-- Sara Moulton, host of the PBS show Sara's Weeknight Meals

"From a Southern Oven is loaded with both savory and sweet dishes you'll want to make over and over again. I love how Jean Anderson avoids endlessly detailed instructions and just gives you the facts; reading one of her recipes is like hearing a friend, albeit with a slight Southern drawl, explain how to prepare a favorite dish. This is a real classic of our American culinary heritage."

-- Nick Malgieri, author of Bake and Bread

-- Malachy Duffy, formerly Senior Editor, Food & Wine Magazine

-- Leslie De Baun, Cary, NC
