The New York Times Best Seller
Southern Living, Food & Wine, Epicurious, Grub Street, and others call it one of the Best Cookbooks of the Year
Sean Brock's influence on American Southern cooking during the twenty-first century has been striking. Although he has not been alone in advocating the return to ingredient varieties that had fallen out of the Southern culinary lexicon, through talent and tenacity he has been one of the most prominent voices raised on their behalf. At the same time, he continues to ask how the cuisine might evolve. In South
Brock offers 125 touchstone recipes for contemporary Southern cooking. These are serious recipes for serious cooks, with the style and sophistication to anchor the menu of a fine dining restaurant but a commitment to traditional flavors and components that make the food unmistakably Southern. If you're thinking that you have several very fine Southern cookbooks already, maybe even a copy of Brock's earlier book, Heritage
, and you wonder whether South
