Frank Stitt's Southern Table?

Pei | Sep 27, 2006 04:10 AM

I picked up a copy of this 1/2 off at a random store today, and was wondering if anyone has used and liked it?

Amazon likes it a lot:

The book is drop dead gorgeous. Page after page of 8x10 glossy photos, all delicious looking. Colorful, seasonal, and sorted by type of dish (appetizer, entree, dessert).
I'm planning to flip through it on a 6 hour car ride tomorrow, so

I'll report back on what I think, but it'll be awhile before I can actually cook out of it. I also picked up the well-reviewed Molto Italiano today at the same store but am taking Southern Table with me to read first simply because it's even more beautifully put together than Batali's book, just to give folks a sense of how lovely a book it is.

Does anyone own it and have more constructive thoughts?
