So, I get free books. If you are a regular reader, you know that. And, maybe, you ask yourself -- how can I get free books? I do not mean, of course, books that are not enslaved. Nor do I even mean books that have escaped the realities of commodity fetishism -- certainly contemporary foodie culture is just that: commodity fetishism. What I mean is: I paid nothing for them. In many cases, they just appear in my mail box screaming "Review me. Please review me." And usually I do. In fact this particular book comes from one of my favorite publishers that sends me cookbooks: Andrews McMeel. And, in fact I am going to the city on which it focuses some time in 2010. But: I thought to myself when I saw it -- why not share the "wealth" -- the freedom -- the free book.
So: I am going to do so. I am going to give it away. I am not going to read it. I am going to just describe it briefly and then say how you can get the book -- FREE.
The book is "Mary Mac's Tea Room," subtitled "65 Years of recipes from Atlanta's Faborite Dining Room" by John Ferrell. Mary Mac's is the only one of Atlanta's "tea rooms," to remain from an original double digit set of places that did not serve tea, but a meat and 3. So, if you want to read about a restaurant that jas lasted 65 years, serving 1000 meals a day often, and get to know (or recognize what you already know) Southern food (or, more particularly Georgian food).
How can you get it? Better yet, how can you get it FREE? How can you get free recipes like Chicken and Southern Dumplings or Hopping John or, perhaps even better, Holiday Eggnog?
