ALABAMA COOK BOOK - Lee Sentell, director of Alabama Tourism, joined us this morning to show off a new cookbook - Alabama Food. More than 225 restaurants across the state are featured in a new photo book titled Alabama Food. The colorful 128-page book was produced in cooperation with the Alabama Tourism Department and covers the food scene in the state by geographic region, starting in North Alabama and ending with the Gulf Coast. It's based on the popular "100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die" brochure and emphasizes unique and original Alabama restaurants, the growth of the farm-to- table movement, and native Alabama foods. Alabama native Patricia "Sister" Schubert of homemade rolls fame, wrote the foreword. It is available at Books-A-Million stores across the state and online at www.bhamstore.com and Amazon.com. Alabama Food can also be purchased at the Governor's Mansion Gift Shop and at The Goathill Museum Store inside the Alabama State Capital in Montgomery. The retail price of the book is $20.
