Books by Mississippi Writers 1996-2010
By Jack Butler Algonquin (Hardcover, $19.95, ISBN: 156512149X, 11/1997) "I'm the original improvisational cook," writes Jack Butler in the introduction to Jack's Skillet. And his book proves him right. Butler's food writing is flavored delightfully by his down-home good-ol'-boy Arkansas/Mississippi roots and spiced up by his humorous observations. Luckily for hungry readers, the book also includes 60 recipes for all the essential dishes in Butler's pantry, including Apple Bread Pudding, Fajitas, Strawberry Shortcake, and Chicken Pot Pie.
