“Perfectly captures the spirit of Music City . . . an incredible collection of recipes that makes you want to spend as much time as possible in Nashville” (Sean Brock, chef and author of Heritage).
If it seems like Nashville is everywhere these days—that’s because it is. GQ recently declared it “Nowville,” and it has become the music hotspot for both country and rock. But as hot as the music scene is, the food scene is even hotter.
In Nashville Eats, more than one hundred mouthwatering recipes reveal why food lovers are headed south for Nashville’s hot chicken, buttermilk biscuits, pulled pork sandwiches, cornmeal-crusted catfish, chowchow, fried green tomatoes, and chess pie. Author Jennifer Justus whips up the classics—such as pimento cheese and fried chicken—but also includes dishes with a twist on traditional Southern fare—such as Curried Black Chickpeas or Catfish Tacos. And alongside the recipes, Jennifer shares her stories of Nashville—the people, music, history, and food that make it so special.
“A love letter to the working class cooking of Nashville . . . Nashville Eats by Jennifer Justus is a well-honed cultural passkey to one of America’s great culinary cities.” —John T. Edge, coeditor, Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook
