About the speaker:

Accomplished food writer Thompson (managing editor, Edible Piedmont, Grillin' with Gas), who also writes the "Weekend Gourmet" column for the Raleigh News & Observer, here begins with spicy Sweet Potato Guacamole, a familiar yet deliciously unconventional dish that hints at what's to come. Recipes like Cheese Straws, Ambrosia, Jicama Ginger Slaw, and Fred's Favorite Oyster Dressing balance old with new, sweet with savory, and plain with upscale. More importantly, they reflect a rich history and the influences of a talented food community that includes Sara Foster, James Villas, Frank Stitt, and others. VERDICT A bible of classic and contemporary Southern sides. Highly recommended.-  Library Journal
