South : essential recipes and new explorations

Image of item
"The promise of South is irresistible. Fried chicken, shrimp and grits, biscuits, pickles, collards, and sweet potato pie from the bestknown chef of one of the world's most beloved cuisines. This collection of recipes for the home kitchen shares the very best versions of the foods we love from the author of Heritage, winner of both James Beard and IACP awards, and a New York Times bestseller with over 106,000 copies in print. Brock is also a serious student of Southern cuisine, a leader in reclaiming heirloom and indigenous ingredients, and an evangelist who convincingly argues that Southern food, so vibrant, diverse, seasonal, and evolving, is as good as any in the world, especially in its virtues of simplicity, thrift, and comfort--exactly what cooks want. In more than 125 recipes, Brock shares the essentials, from snacks like boiled peanuts and fried green tomatoes to the pillars of Southern cooking--not just the aforementioned fried chicken, but also SheCrab Soup, Grilled Catfish with Hoppin' John, and Dirty Rice--plus dozens of vegetable and bean dishes, cornbread four different ways, and desserts like Buttermilk Pie and Blackberry Cobbler. He also includes the basics--such as pepper sauce, bacon jam, and BBQ rub--and some real Southern knowledge, including a Country Ham Road Map, How to Cook a Pot of Greens, and Taking Care of Cast Iron. And all of it is delivered with the voice, the knowledge, and the passion of an author who is himself, like the cuisine he champions, a Southern treasure"--
