Changing Hands Bookstore Phoenix welcomes James Beard Award-winning Chef Sean Brock for a booksigning in celebration of his first book, Heritage.
Afterwards, join Chef Sean Brock and Southern Rail Restaurant's Justin Beckett for a prix fixe three-course dinner featuring recipes and cocktails from Heritage.
Deemed "one of the most important chefs in America" by Anthony Bourdain and "a national treasure" by Mario Batali, Sean Brock is best known for his drive to preserve the Heritage foods of the South. His dishes are ingredient-driven and reinterpret the flavors of his youth in Appalachia and his adopted hometown of Charleston.
The recipes in Heritage include comfort food (think food to eat at home) and high-end restaurant fare (fancier dishes when there's more time to cook) for which he has become so well-known. Brock's interpretation of Southern favorites like Pickled Shrimp, Hoppin' John, and Chocolate Alabama Stack Cake sit alongside recipes for Crispy Pig Ear Lettuce Wraps, Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder with Tomato Gravy, and Baked Sea Island Red Peas. This book is very personal, including headnotes that explain Brock's background and give context to his food as well as essays in which he shares his admiration for the purveyors and ingredients he cherishes.
