A Fannie Flagg Special

Author : Fannie Flagg
Genre : Fiction - Drama/Humour
Picked by : Simran

A remarkable story teller who's built a world of eccentric old world charm in her books, all set in Southern USA. You would think she is a time traveler, the way she moves effortlessly between memories that span several decades. Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is her most famous book but equally charming is the world in Elmwood Springs, Missouri that she has built in Welcome to the World, Baby Girl.

Recipes that Fannie Flagg Inspired:
Aqua read the Redbird Christmas but was inspired by Fried Green Tomatoes to bake butter cookies.
Jaya read the Redbird Christmas and made Cornbread.
PJ picked Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe and was inspired to make polenta and spring vegetable ratatouille.
Simran read all of Fannie Flagg's works (but not all this month!) and made Naankhattai.
