The Good Book of Southern Baking: A Revival of Biscuits, Cakes, and Cornbread

2020 Lorena Jones Books

by

This book is currently available for pre-order and will be ready for shipping and instore pickup after September 8th 2020.

A comprehensive, contemporary collection of more than 100 beloved Southern baking recipes from the James Beard Award-winning Kelly Fields of the New Orleans bakery Willa Jean.

As the minister of Southern baking, celebrated pastry chef Kelly Fields has spent decades figuring out what makes the absolute best biscuits, cornbread, butterscotch pudding, peach pie, hummingbird cake, and, well, every baked temptation in the Southern repertoire.

Colorful and sometimes sentimental storytelling introduces each recipe as Fields brings bakers into her world, generously divulging her ingenious tips and tricks (00 flour makes the flakiest biscuits; soaking your cornmeal overnight produces the moistest cornbread). With more than 100 recipes for quick breads, muffins, biscuits, cookies and bars, puddings and custards, cobblers, crisps, galettes, pies, tarts, and cakes—plus dozens of irresistible variations on the standards—this is the new bible for Southern baking.

So, whether it’s biscuits (there are seven recipes, including one for dog biscuits because every Southern baker has a good dog to spoil) or Chess Pie you crave, Kelly Fields has you covered—and highly entertained with asides like “I’m gonna bury y’all in biscuits and cornbread.” Bakers of all ages will sing the praises of this collection.
