Launched in 1966, Southern Living® magazine set out to find the best the South had to offer and to bring it to life on the printed page. Today, Southern Living reaches 16 million readers monthly and is renowned for great food and gracious entertaining. The Test Kitchens of Southern Living tested this all-star recipe collection and brings readers the treasured recipes of FOREST GUMP.
Forrest Gump stepped out of the pages of Winston Groom’s novel, up onto the silver screen, and into the hearts of more than 30 million Americans. If you’re lucky, you count yourself among them.
Now you can open to any page... and just like Forrest’s mama said about life... “You never know what you’re gonna get.” There are shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, shrimp cocktail... over 75 recipes all told, and every mouth-watering one of them heaven-sent.
And speaking of heaven, Forrest wanted to remember his mama with these recipes, and his best friend, Bubba, too. And he didn’t want Li’l Forrest to grow up without knowing the Gump family shrimp secrets. These recipes are so downright delicious, you’ll know that “miracles do happen every day.”
Forrest Gump has never been a man to complicate things... he’s a simple man, but one who “knows what love is.” Try some of the shrimp recipes in this book, and you’ll know what he means.
Forrest’s mama loved the South, and its magazine, Southern Living®. “They just have a way with food,” she used to say. Try these shrimp fixings, all tested in the Southern Living kitchens, and you’ll say his mama was right every time. Even if the President of the United States knocks on your door, you’ll have the very thing to put on his plate. Tell him Forrest Gump said to say hello... and to remember his own mama.
