Mary Mac's shares its recipes

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

It’s an Atlanta landmark that’s been around for more than six decades, serving Southern favorites such as tomato pie, macaroni and cheese and fried chicken.

The only thing richer than the food at Mary Mac’s Tea Room is perhaps the restaurant’s history and popular customs. From filling out your order form and getting that first complimentary cup of pot likker with a piece of corn bread, to its famous diners (Dalai Lama, President Jimmy Carter, Hillary Rodham Clinton and James Brown, to name a few), Mary Mac’s has certainly made its mark.

This week, John Ferrell, who took over ownership of the tea room in 1994, will share 125 recipes in his new cookbook, “Mary Mac’s Tea Room: 65 Years of Recipes From Atlanta’s Favorite Dining Room” (Andrews McMeel, $27.99).
