Now in its eighth printing, Georgia on my Menu: A Medley of Southern Hits truly can be said to represent two areas of life with which Georgians are intimately acquainted the appreciation of fine Southern cooking and the desire to have music in one’s life. Georgia on my Menu offers a collection of the best recipes of our state, which may be used to orchestrate a truly musical and magical culinary experience.
You might begin with Overtures and Preludes — appetizers, beverages, soups and salads that set the tone for a gracious repast. The Accompaniments (fruits and vegetables) and the Melodies (entrees) are enjoyed fully in the presence of the Harmonies (breads). The Finale (desserts) merely signifies the fitting end to a truly enjoyable event.
Two special sections of the score can also be performed. The Encore section offers a delicious array of Sunday night suppers, which will enable all samplers to appreciate the subtle delicacy of “supper” in the Southern sense. The Celebrities portion offers unique hints and selections from Georgia celebrities and restaurants; these recipes could make you a culinary star in your own right!
Created to “inspire gracious living”, Southern on Occasion is a must-have for everyone. This award-winning cookbook guides you through an entire year of living and entertaining in the South by providing over 300 recipes and 30 planned seasonal menus.
In the cookbook, League members also share personal anecdotes, favorite recipes and creative tabletop ideas which epitomize the traditions, memories and creative style of the Southern region.
