Product Details


“Kelly Fields honors her Southern heritage through her beloved, approachable recipes—many grounded in tradition and others reimagined, enhanced by her whimsical flair. With skillfully detailed, straight-forward, and easy-to-follow steps, this book belongs on every cookbook shelf.”—Claudia Fleming, author of The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern 

“It’s hard to resist the laid-back, roll-up-your-sleeves and BAKE energy that Kelly Fields brings to the kitchen. From Creole Cheesecake, with made-from-scratch New Orleans–style cream cheese, to a hummingbird cake spiked with rose petals, her approach to dessert marries a pastry chef’s attention to detail with the breezy, ‘ain’t nothin’ to it’ ethos of a true Southern baker. Dust off your measuring cups, stock up on buttermilk, and get ready to bake!”—Stella Parks, author of BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts 

The Good Book of Southern Baking is the result of Kelly Fields’s twenty years of travel and kitchen experience. She had me at biscuits and cornbread, but I was just as excited about her deep dive into the ‘how-tos’ and ‘whys’ of some of my childhood favorites. She makes baking fun, attainable, and, most of all, delicious.”—Carla Hall, author of Carla Hall’s Soul Food 

“Navigating the Southern baking canon is a delicate task. We Southern bakers come from a rich heritage of skill, but one that has been over-looked and codified as ‘quaint’ and ‘simple’ for far too long. Kelly Fields has elevated our region’s baking status with her technical deftness and creative vision. She communicates these recipes with an approachable mastery that speaks to her understanding of ingredients, procedure, and all the mutable variables. With this book, we are lucky to gain access to the great mind of one of our most important pastry chefs and one who explains not only how but why baking works (the key to all good baking). This is an important book—a classic in the making.”—Lisa Donovan, author of Our Lady of Perpetual Hunger
