Nashville isn't just a great city for country music; it's a great city for incredible Southern food. Jennifer Justus' Nashville Eats shows everyone – Northerners and Southerners – just how to duplicate this wonderful food at home. While there are always cookbooks coming out that have over a hundred recipes, Nashville Eats has over a hundred recipes cooks actually want to cook. Many of the recipes have pictures of the mouthwatering dishes, which is an essential attribute of a good cookbook.

This book seems to have it all: The recipe for pimento cheese is the best I've found yet, with just the perfect balance of cheese, spice, and pimento. Buttermilk biscuits, Real Southern Skillet Cornbread ("if it has sugar, it ain't cornbread"), fried chicken, yummy coleslaw, fried catfish, and almost everything Southern. The recipes are easy to follow, and every one I have tried (the queue is growing, but six so far), has turned out picture-perfect.

A bonus to this cookbook, is that it is full of stories, not only of the author's family and the recipes that have been handed down, but also of Nashville's well-known residents and country music stars. Not only is this a book to cook from, it is a book to sit down and actually read.

Even though I have an advance review copy of this book on my kindle, it is definitely one I want to have in my library in hardcover form. This excellent book is a "must have" for anyone who wants to cook real Southern. It is highly recommended!

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying an advance review copy of this book.
