"A must-read...Everything about Consuming Passions-from the title to the recipes-just drips with Southern charm."
-Denver Post

"A scrumptiously witty memoir about family, food, and the American South."

"If Foote puts you on the front porch with his Southern family, novelist West invites you into the kitchen, where she chats about family and food, shares recipes and advice. …Her descriptions of kinfolks are delicious too."
-Orlando Sentinel
