Praise for The Lady & Sons“The recipes in this book are so wonderful, I almost ate the book!”–Fannie Flagg“My meal of the year . . . Paula Deen’s home-style Southern menu at The Lady & Sons turned me into a ravenous beast unmindful of manners, cholesterol, North-South diplomacy, and the dropped jaws of my companions.”–Jerry Shriver, USA Today“I tell Savannah-bound friends that if they want a short course in the meaning of Southern cooking–the flavors, the ambience, indeed the very heart of Southern cooking–they should drop in at The Lady & Sons.”–John Berendt
