For the last 50 years, "Southern Living" magazine has reported on and photographed what makes the South so very unique and how it has evolved; it's distinct regions, its music, its homes, its gardens, its food, and most importantly, its people. Now, to mark its Golden Anniversary, "Southern Living" presents a gorgeous gift book that tells the true story of the South as only Southerners and "Southern Living" can tell it.
Filled with evocative images, fascinating stories, revealing explorations, and time-honored recipes, Southern Living 50 Years is about how Southerners live, what they value, how they cook, how they welcome people into their homes. The book is divided into three sections:
Journey South A visual road trip through the South accompanied by thoughtful essays
Welcome Home A celebration of the Southern home including gardens, architecture, design, and indoor and outdoor living.
The Southern Table The South is famous for nothing if not its food. The book includes an exploration of the evolution of regional cuisine and includes 40 favorite recipes from Southern Living magazine with many additional recipes from renowned Southern chefs.
Southern Living 50 Years reminds Southerners what makes their region and their lifestyle so special. And for non-Southerners, it serves as a fascinating guidebook and provides an authentic view of the distinctive culture of the South.
