Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock authored this wonderful book: http://www.amazon.com/Gift...
Also, Craig Claiborne (raised in the deep South) has an excellent book on Southern cooking - he's not mentioned much around here, but he really was one of the best recipe writers: http://www.amazon.com/Craig...

The Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock collaboration (The Art of Southern Cooking) is indeed something of a milestone. So is Edna Lewis's earlier book, A Taste of Country Cooking.

The Art of Southern Cooking (Lewis and Peacock) is a wonderful book; I second those recommenders. My copy is all marked up.

I would recommend the fun book "Being Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral" which has great recipes for Pimento Cheese!

Anything by Edna Lewis (she's the real deal). I also love the Lee Brothers (they just came out with a really nice-looking book on Charleston cuisine). Don't rule out the paperback junior league or church cookbooks, though. Often, those cheap and ragged spiral-bound things are great representations of regional cooking (although you often have to sift through the condensed soup non-recipes to get to the good ones). Try looking at Bonnie Slotnick's for some of those.

any book by Edna Lewis is a treasure! also any book by Nathalie Dupree. And check out "Bon Appetit, Y'All" by Virginia Willis.

I second Edna Lewis & Scott Peacock's 'Gift of Southern Cooking' - it's truly a wonderful book. I would also add Bill Neal's 'Southern Cooking' and the Lee Brothers Charleston Cookbook. If you want to go old-school - Mrs. Dull's Southern Cooking and Charleston Receipts.

I like "Seasoned in the South," from the chef at Crook's Corner in Carrboro, NC. http://www.crookscorner...

Shuck beans, Stack Cakes, and Honest Fried Chicken by Ronni Lundy. Great stories, photos, methods by legendary southern musicians. I bought this book 20+ years ago and it's still resonant in the baking I do today.

No question -- get a copy of Charleston Receipts. Classic Junior League cookbook -- real Southern cooking.
