Reviews about this book

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    None of the recipes are Schrager’s own. They are the work of chefs from all over, big names like Yotam Ottolenghi and Thomas Keller, and proprietors of one-room chicken shacks across the South.

  • NPR by T. Susan Chang

    2013 Top Summer Cookbooks: ...also an army of sides...because there's only so many fried chickens you can cook (or eat) in a single summer. But don't let that stop you from trying to eat them all.
