“For the past decade, Sheree Kelley has been a blessing to the Belle Meade Plantation, where her husband, Alton Kelley, is executive director. Sheree has been responsible for Belle Meade’s winery and for teaching culinary classes. Both have been extraordinarily successful. Under the tutelage of her mother and grandmothers in Giles County, Sheree became an excellent cook, specializing in traditional Southern food. For her to write this book is a natural next step to make her recipes available not only to her friends, but to anyone who appreciates wonderful food. A bonus is that Sheree’s cookbook is beautifully done.”
Ridley Wills, Nashville Historian and Author of The History of Belle Meade and Nashville Streets and Their Stories
“Infused with warmth, love for family, and scrumptious heirloom Southern recipes, Sheree Rose Kelley’s Breads & Spreads is an absolute delight! Kelley’s heartwarming stories and family photographs blend with beautifully designed images to make this far more than a fabulous cookbook—it’s an absolute treasure!”
Tamera Alexander, USA Today bestselling author of To Whisper Her Name and Christmas at Carnton
“Sheree Kelley has penned a must have cookbook for all Kitchens. The photographs capture the essence of the simple and delicious recipes. The heart filled stories are the icing on the Breads.”
Miss Daisy King, Author of 14 Cookbooks and Restaurateur
“Being from an endless line of great cooks and bakers, I have not a single reason — with the knowledge given me — not to use it all and pass it around.
Now comes the time for measuring out the particulars of a culinary education. Here, I am compelled to discuss Mama’s Hushpuppies and Zesty Cocktail Sauce . . . and, there, to explain why Date Nut Bread and Orange Cream Cheese Spread are the perfect addition to baby and wedding showers. Hence, Breads & Spreads.
My desire to compile a cookbook of family recipes and ever-evolving discoveries comes from a love of good food, a fascination with stories, and a commitment to a delicious table spread for family and friends.
This book embraces our rural traditions and our metropolitan range.
My love of the country life starts with the ease of picking the seasons in Daddy’s Pulaski garden. When he calls me with “the cherries are ready,” I know that a trip to his garden will lead to the most scrumptious jam.
My love of the city ranges from sampling new restaurants to shopping for exotic ingredients.
I give nods to my Giles County roots and my Nashville wings.”
