The State Hometown Cookbook Series is a collection of cookbooks that are the perfect addition to any home cook’s library and also appeal to the armchair traveler. There are currently five finished editions in the series, Georgia Hometown Cookbook, Louisiana Hometown Cookbook, Mississippi Hometown Cookbook, South Carolina Hometown Cookbook, Tennessee Hometown Cookbook, Texas Hometown Cookbook, and the West Virginia Hometown Cookbook . Each book is a collection of tried and true recipes that preserve the regional food traditions of the state. You’ll find recipes for dishes that families have enjoyed over and over again.

More than just great food! Authors Sheila Simmons and Kent Whitaker pay particular attention to the way the recipes are presented to ensure that each one is easy-to-follow with instructions that are clear and concise.
