After the tremendous success of her novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, and the beloved movie that followed, author Fannie Flagg received thousands of requests from all over the world asking for recipes from the little cafe of her Alabama childhood that was the model for the cafe in her novel. Now, she joyfully shares those recipes, in what may well be the first cookbook ever written by a satisfied customer rather than a cook! Inside you'll find wonderful recipes for:
* Skinless Fried Chicken * Pork Chops with Apples and Sweet Potatoes * Baked Ham and Pineapple Rings * Baked Turkey with Traditional Cornbread Dressing * Black-eyed Peas * Fried Okra * Creamed Onions * Broccoli Casserole * Southern Cream Gravy * Fried Catfish * Scalloped Oysters * Down Home Crab Cakes * Beaten Biscuits * Corn Pones * Lemon Ice Box Pie * Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie * And much more!

The recipes in Fannie Flagg's Original Whistle Stop Cafe Cookbook are all for delicious hearty happy food that comes with all sorts of things, from gravies to hot sauces (very often the secret's in the sauce). But most of all this food, and this book, comes with love.

"If you liked her novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, and if you liked the movie they made from that novel, you'll like this cookbook....It's funny, just like Flagg."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Recommended...All the traditional dishes are here, along with the author's irreverent, irresistible commentary on Southern cooking and culture."
--Library Journal

About the author (2011)

FANNIE FLAGG's writing career began behind the scenes of television's "Candid Camera" and progressed to out-in-front as performer-writer. Her acting achievements led to roles in motion pictures including "Five Easy Pieces," with Jack Nicholson; "Stay Hungry," with Jeff Bridges and Sally Field; and, most recently, "Crazy in Alabama," with Melanie Griffith. For the theater in New York she did "Patio Porch "and "Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean," and played the lead role in the Broadway musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,"
Her first novel, "Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man," was on the "New York Times "bestseller list for ten weeks. Her second, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe," praised by Harper Lee and Eudora Welty, was on the "Times" list for thirty-six weeks. It was made into the memorable hit movie "Fried Green Tomatoes," starring Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates. The screenplay, also written by Flagg, earned her the coveted Scripters Award and was nominated for an Academy Award and the Writers Guild of America Screen Award. Her reading of the Random House audiobook received a Grammy nomination.
That book gave way to an even bigger hardcover success for "Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!, "a "New York Times "Notable Book of the Year, which "The Christian Science Monitor "called "captivating . . . a comic novel to open with open arms." Flagg lives in California and in Alabama.
