To celebrate 25 successful years of delicious southern cooking, the Junior League of Pensacola has released the 9th printing of Some Like it South!, the timelessly trendy cookbook that exemplifies Gulf Coast living and entertaining at its very best.

Life on the Gulf Coast thrives on good food, good company, and great gatherings. Some Like it South! was created accordingly in 1984 and is still worth celebrating today. The book features over 550 recipes, 50 of which are for appetizers and drinks alone. There are also seasonal menus, hundreds of dessert recipes, and favorite southern dishes.

The recipes in Some Like it South! draw on the flavorful and diverse food genres of the region, as well as the abundant fresh Gulf Coast seafood. Recipes that epitomize this rich food culture include:

- Crab Stuffed Mushrooms and Seafood-Stuffed Artichokes

- Gazpacho Madrileño and varieties of Shrimp Remoulade

- Shrimp in Beer Creole, Oysters Bienville and Red Snapper with Sour Cream Dressing

- Carpetbag St. Joseph’s and Cashew-Ginger Chicken

- Broccoli Pecan Casserole and Praline Yam Casserole with Orange Sauce

With seven loaded recipe chapters, Some Like it South! is an essential southern cookbook for collectors, food lover’s, and anyone who revels in the delicious Gulf Coast lifestyle.

Proceeds from Some Like it South! will continue to support the Junior League of Pensacola in their ongoing commitment to promote voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
