Culinary: Best Southern Cookbooks

Jan 17 2013

by Whitney Long

When I got married, I was given a copy of Tea-Time at the Masters and is one of the best gifts I received! This quintessential Southern cookbook is a staple in my kitchen as well as many other kitchens across the South. The cookbook was first released in 1974 and features over 650 recipes from the golfer’s wives including classic dishes, appetizers, desserts and drinks.

Some wonderful (and quite famous) recipes to try:

The Now Famous Cheese Ring
Broccoli Casserole

Purchase the cookbook at:

There are so many wonderful cookbooks produced by Junior Leagues throughout the South. Though many are out of print, they are still worth purchasing used or contact the Junior League.

Some favorites in addition to “Tea-Time at the Masters” include:

Charleston Receipts

Savannah Style

Chattanooga: Seasoned to Taste

New Orleans: The Plantation Cookbook

Notably Nashville

Jackson: Come On In!

What are some of your favorite cookbooks? Please share!

    I have always loved River Road Recipes and Talk About Good, the LaFayette Jr. League. But my all time favorite hales from my hometown of Griffin, Ga. -The Stuffed Griffin. All covers are bent and show much use. I can’t part with any of them, even with the advent of on-line recipes.

    My fave is Charleston Receipts!! I especially love the black/white drawings throughout it. I leave mine out on an old family wooden cookbook stand, open to page 221 that has the most beautiful sketch “St. Philip’s Church 1835″….so beautiful!
