I recently had the opportunity to review the Jack Daniel's Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook from Thomas Nelson Publishers. I love cooking and have collected cookbooks for years, so I jumped at the chance to review this book.
I was somewhat concerned about the recipes all having whiskey in them, but I was delighted to learn that there are many recipes that don't call for Jack Daniel's.
Not only is this book full of great recipes, but it's got great anecdotal information about Jack Daniel's and Lynchburg, Tennessee where Jack Daniel's originated and is made.
This book has great simple recipes such as Campfire Trout (there is a whole outdoor cooking section) that calls for only fresh trout, bacon & lemon cooked over a campfire right alongside full page instructions for how to do a pit barbeque make this book unique and right for any level of home cook.
Tipsy Sweet Potatoes that features Jack Daniel’s is one I have bookmarked to try for sure along with Onion and Apple Bake that calls for onions, apples, bacon, bacon drippings bread crumbs and chicken stock. How mouth watering does that sound?
In addition to the usual cook book sections like entrees and appetizers the Jack Daniel's Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook includes recipes for drinks, breads, cakes and pies, desserts and even accompaniments like Fruit and Vegetable Relish, Special Pimento Cheese and Tomato Gravy.
My concerns were all gone after flipping through this book one time. The Jack Daniel's Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook would be a great addition to your collection or make a perfect gift for a cook in your life even if they are not an alcohol drinker.
