Host of the most popular show on the fast growing Turner South Network, Marvin Woods serves up some of the South's most unique and delicious dishes in Home Plate Cooking.

Nothing says the South more than its unique food and various cooking styles. Southern recipes are cherished heirlooms passed down from generation to generation and Home Plate Cooking shows how to prepare the same recipes your grandmother used to make, while sharing fresh versions of the same food. That could mean preparing a marinade for collard greens that will eliminate the need for fat back, or cutting down on preparation or cooking time for a family favorite. Featuring 150 recipes, Home Plate Cooking celebrates home cooked southern meals in a way southern recipes have never been presented before.

"I started challenging myself six or seven years ago to prepare tasty cuisine that reflected my heritage and influence but to alter it so that people could eat it more than once a week and not have to worry about suffering from high blood pressure in every bite," Woods said.

In Home Plate Cooking, Woods shares recipes for delicacies such as:


  • Eggplant Caviar
  • Crab Cakes with Lemon Dressing
  • Shrimp Pilaf
  • Sautéed collard greens
  • Drunken Strawberries with Chantilly Cream
  • Black-eyed pea cakes
  • Oyster Hush Puppies
  • Bourbon Bread Pudding
  • Southern-exposed fried chicken
