Long before Pinterest, there was the community cookbook, an authentic collection of shared recipes that told the story of a people and a place. We cooked from dozens of our dog-eared favorites to unearth vintage recipes for today's home cook.
We may not be bound by spiral (or by staples anymore, for that matter), but Southern Living has been the ultimate community cookbook of the South, publishing the country's best home cooking for nearly 50 years. After poring over 45,000 recipes in our canon, author Sheri Castle collected 200 of the most delicious, including Hummingbird Cake and Classic Deviled Eggs, regional favorites and created The Southern Living Community Cookbook.
