Southern Plate - Christy Jordan
Hardback. Very good condition. 2010
With thirteen living grandparents at the time of her birth, Christy Jordan grew up in a family that knew how to make a lot from a little and always put a homecooked meal on the table, even when times were tough. She also inherited one heck of a recipe collection from her large Southern family (who have lived in Alabama for the last nine generations) which gave birth to SouthernPlate.com in 2008. The site has a dedicated fan base, pulling in an average of 3.5 million page views a month, and nearly 6 million in November 2009 alone. In the short time since its inception, the site has grown from 18 million to 43 million page views a year.
"Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family" will contains time honoured family recipes, passed down through several generations of the Jordan family. The recipes are accompanied by brief stories about where they came from, who made them, and why they are special. Along with gorgeous photography, the book also includes old family photographs and other historical snapshots.
Ultimately, "Southern Plate" is a book about love, nostalgia for simpler times, and the unpretentious comfort food that came from Christy's Grandmother's kitchen and went straight into her heart. You won't find fancy food or new fangled recipes in this cookbook; just easy, no fuss Southern favourites - because at the end of the day most folks want to come home to a meal just like Mama used to make, prepared by someone who loves them.
