Good Grits! (Southern Boy Cooks) by Jim Shirley


Jim Shirley, the author of Good Grits: Southern Boy Cooks, has chosen for the book the best recipes from Good Grits!, his weekly column in the Pensacola News Journal. He tells a brief, entertaining story about the origin of each recipe, and excellent photographs illustrate each dish. Recipes include appetizers, soups, salads, seafood, poultry, pork, beef, lamb, rabbit, and desserts. Shirley, who is now executive chef of Pensacola’s upscale restaurant, The Fish House, grew up in a Navy family, traveling the world over, and often spent summers on his grandmothers’ farms, eating down-home southern cooking of fresh tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers, lettuces, corn, okra, collards, peas, turnips, mustard, onions, butter beans, and new potatoes that his grandmothers grew and cooked. He creates these delicious dishes by combining his cooking and eating experiences as a world-traveler.
