Pat Mitchamore
Publisher Thomas Nelson Inc
Genre: Cookbook
Pages: 192
My Rating : 5/5

Summary: The rich tradition of country cooking, the distinctive taste of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, and the heritage of rural America are all elegantly captured in Jack Daniel's The Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook. Included are more than 350 recipes, stunning full-color photographs, and stories of the people, places, and traditions of Middle Tennessee. Illustrated and indexed.

My Review: The Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook has become one of my favorite cookbooks! Not only is it packed with down home super recipes, passed down from generation to generation, but it’s also full of beautiful Southern photo’s and history.

It will make a wonderful keepsake and provide you with a fantastic journey down memory lane. You’ll enjoy reading about Miss BoBo’s Boarding House, learning what whittling is, and don’t forget about those Tennessee Walking horses!

I was a little skeptical about getting The Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook because I was thinking all the recipes would contain alcohol. I was so thrilled and quickly proven wrong! Some of my favorite recipes included Poor Man’s Caviar, Spinach Tarts, and Uncle Jack’s Applesauce Cake. Another great thing about The Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook is the recipes are so simple to follow and many just use normal everyday items that you already have in your cupboards.
