Review:

"The Blue Ribbon Cook Book" is a timely collection that is certain to bring more than just a bit of Kentucky flavor to the family dinner table. -- Larry Cox "Tucson Citizen"

All in all, it's a marvelous read, and a delicious way to revisit the commonwealth's culinary tradition. -- Pableaux Johnson "courier-journal.com"

Indeed, if you had only one cookbook in your home, this wouldn't be a bad one to consider, with its comprehensive, concise and easy-to-use recipes. -- Scott Hawkins "The Sun Herald"

The entire cookbook is charming. -- Mary Alan Woodward "The Voice-Tribune"

""The Blue Ribbon Cook Book is one of the iconic texts in Kentucky's illustrious cookbook history--and few states have produced as many fine collections of recipes. In this sparkling lineup of food stars, none outshone Miss Jennie. She had it all: the kitchen touch, the business sense, the communication skills, the personality. Kentucky is renowned as a fountainhead of superior cookery in no small part because of Jennie C. Benedict's impact in the food world generations ago." "Comprehensive, concise and easy-to-use recipes." "A timely collection... more than just a bit of Kentucky flavor." -- John Egerton" --

"The BLUE RIBBON COOK BOOK is a Louisville treasure. Not only does it evoke great memories of downtown Saturday lunchces at Stewarts and The Colonnade, but also culinary traditions passed down to me by my grandmother who considered Jennie Benedict the last word on luncheons and entertaining. While friends were busy playing jacks and jumping rope, I was learning to make Charlotte Russe, Benedictine and dreaming up my own Garden Sandwiches for a real tea party. I am eternally grateful.Linda Allison-Lewis KENTUCKY LIVING FOOD COLUMNIST, Author, KENTUCKY'S BEST - 50 Years of Great Recipes" --

""Three cheers to Susan Reigler and the University Press of Kentucky for publishing "Miss Jennie's" Blue Ribbon Cookbook! Susan gets to the heart of this celebrated character in her Introduction to the book; and in addition to the recipes Susan cites, I am fascinated by the chapters on "Menus" at the end of the book. Today's cooks still have much to learn from Jennie Benedict's honest, straightforward, confident writing!" --Kathy Cary, Chef/Owner, Lilly's Bistro, Louisville" --

""The Blue Ribbon Cook Book is a timely collection that is certain to bring more than just a bit of Kentucky flavor to the family dinner table." --Larry Cox, Tucson Citizen" --
