I just finished reading Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe and at the end of the book, there are a bunch of recipes for dishes mentioned in the book. They sound good, esp the one for buttermilk biscuits, and I am tempted to try a few except... these are recipes written by the author, a woman who writes fiction and doesn't seem to have any culinary credentials from what I can tell.
So not sure how much thought has done into creating and testing these recipes.. perhaps they are there more for effect since the book mentions the food so much?
Has anyone tried the recipes they have found in fiction books? How good/bad there they?
