Somebody Stole the Cornbread from My Dressing

The Overmountain Press is pleased to publish Somebody Stole the Cornbread from My Dressing by Elizabeth Heiskell and Susanne Reed. Anyone who has traveled from the South to the North (or vice versa) can attest to the many cultural differences between the two. In this book, Susanne Reed presents a humorous comparison between these regions through her own experiences and misfortunes. She worked with her longtime friend Chef Elizabeth Heiskell to develop great menus and recipes for any occasion. These recipes are versatile, easy to prepare, and perfect for a beginner or a gourmet. The beautiful images by internationally accomplished photographer Caroline Allison brilliantly complement the narrative and recipes. This is more than a cookbook — it is a primer on adapting to a new culture and thriving within it.

Somebody Stole the Cornbread from My Dressing answers the “what to serve” question for anyone who is planning a special occasion — or just dinner. Combining great ingredients that can be found at every grocery store with tons of laughs, Susanne Reed and Elizabeth Heiskell give readers ideas for hosting the perfect tailgate, bridal shower, baby shower, Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, and more.

"Susanne Reed may have lived up north for a spell, but we forgive her, because she and Mississippi chef Elizabeth Heiskell have written a book of recipes and narratives that is more fun than a barrel of monkeys!"
— Gayden Metcalfe & Charlotte Hays, authors of Some Day You’ll Thank Me for This

"For me, Somebody Stole the Cornbread from My Dressing is like coming home. For those folks not lucky enough to have been born in the Mississippi Delta, you will be gratefully transported by Susanne Young Reed’s tales and Elizabeth Heiskell’s mouth-watering recipes. I defy you to resist her Four Cheese Garlic Grits, Bring on the Luck Black-Eyed Pea Salad, or Chandelier Swingin’ Artichoke and Crab Dip, just to name a few of her instant classics. Whether you are planning a baby shower, a tailgate picnic, a New Year’s brunch, or just a simple supper for yourself, this book is a must have."
— Julia Reed, author of The House on First Street
