Renowned Southern cooking show personalities and authors Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart have teamed up again to bring us Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking (Gibbs Smith, hardcover, $45.00), a comprehensive cookbook and guide to all things related to Southern food. Book Your Lunch with Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart on Friday, November 30th, from 12-2 pm at Soby's. Tickets are $25 each and must be purchased in advance at http://www.bookyourlunch.com or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540. With authority and passion, Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart reveal the essence of food that delights, entices, and satisfies, celebrating the “Mother Cuisine” of American cooking, with more than 750 recipes and 650 variations. Based on years of research, beginning with their first collaboration in 1985 for the PBS television series New Southern Cooking, the authors embrace the cookbooks and recipes of the past, enhancing them with the foods and conveniences of today. Teachers first and foremost, Dupree and Graubart help cooks conquer fears of flour and fat, writing clear techniques so both seasoned home cooks and kitchen novices alike can produce the lightest biscuits and flakiest pie crusts. With recipes like Lazy Girl Cobbler and Bubbly Butter Bean Soup, the beginning cook is brought along from basic skills to more involved techniques, such as mastering a souffle, frying a batch of crispy squash blossoms, and butterflying a succulent pork tenderloin. Vegetables, the music of the Southern table, are taught in both traditional and new ways, such as grilled asparagus, creamy grits, and okra chips. The first comprehensive book on the beloved foods of the South since the groundbreaking Southern Cooking by Mrs. R.H. Dull in 1928, Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking is the new standard reference for cooks everywhere on how to prepare the South’s most satisfying dishes, preserving the techniques and tastes of this beloved regional cuisine.
