I love southern food; in fact, anyone with bona fide taste buds must surely love southern food! Southern Inspired: More Than 100 Delicious Dishes from My American Table to Yours is an excellent way to get acquainted with innovative types of southern food, and also to serve others with this good stuff. Although there are a few classic southern dishes in this cookbook, Wells has taken it a step further and added his unique signature to dishes that are not plain and traditional.

The recipes stand out, in that they are for dishes that almost everyone will want to eat. They are written in the traditional form with step-by-step instructions so that they are easy to follow. Most of the recipes call for ingredients that are already in the pantry, fridge, or freezer, and are easy to find at most grocery stores. Another thing that stands out is that there are beautiful photographs of almost every recipe that make each dish look mouthwatering. Once read, almost every reader will have a queue that will last for months.

I love cookbooks where the personality of the author comes through; this is one of them, and he is likeable and awesome. I’d love to be in his kitchen chatting and cooking with him. I’ll have to settle for making his incredible dishes, and that’s fine too, since I can share them with my favorite people. This cookbook is definitely one that will be used often and most importantly enjoyed.

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