You'd be forgiven for dismissing the Jack Daniel's Cook Book as only a collection of whiskey cocktails recipes, but this is one book you shouldn't judge by it's cover.
The magic of this book lies in the rest of the title Stories and Kitchen Secrets from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding house.
Lynchburg is home to both icons of food and drink, Jack Daniel's and Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House and the two have a shared history and a shared destiny.
Proprietress of Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House, Lynne Tolley and collaborator /co-author Mindy Merrell have managed to balance this perfectly by giving us a taste of both histories.
There are many whiskey inspired recipes in dishes and cocktails, but then there are also great Southern dishes that are alcohol-free and a real asset to your recipe collection.
The Barbecue and Grilling chapter is a treasure trove of great tips and tricks because it's well known that smoking is a key part of creating the perfect Jack Daniel's whiskey and barbecuing is part of Southern Cooking.
