Best of the Best from Florida


Since the original Best of the Best from Florida Cookbook was released in 1986, hundreds of wonderful new cookbooks have evolved from Florida's diverse cuisine. So many, in fact, that the editors felt Florida should be revisited with the release of a brand-new cookbook featuring a completely new collection of the most popular recipes from the Sunshine State's leading cookbooks. Best of the Best from Florida offers such delightful recipes as tender, flaky Baked Snapper Fillets, zesty Sandpipers Onion Tart, and refreshing Key Lime Rum Pie.


Reviews


"I have owned this book for years and have made a number of recipes from it, enjoying them all. I gave copies to two friends for Christmas this past year and just gave another copy to a work associate who is retiring and moving to Florida. That along with a Publix Gift Card was greeted with warmth!" --David Beltre


"If you want a little taste of Florida, this has it. Love the old pictures of Florida as well as plenty of good recipes. We gave it to a friend who was leaving the country and had been living in Florida as a reminder of his time here." Amanda Rimke

"This cookbook series lives up to its title..I have several of these and love all of them and can't wait to move to Florida and enjoy dining on the recipes in this book!" --Spencer Howell
