Uniquely blending her down-home Mississippi roots with her classical French culinary training, Atlanta chef Jennifer Hill Booker serves up Southern dishes with a sophisticated twist in Field Peas to Foie Gras. The cookbook features 13 family-favorite recipes-from tender Braised Short Ribs and robust Venison Stew to Indulgent Caramel Cake-utilizing farm-to-table ingredients. The Southern flavor is artfully elevated with French flair, from technique to presentation. Accompanying the amazing food photography are personal stories and photos that recount Booker's time on the family farm, tending the garden, raising chickens, and canning and preserving.-- (12/15/2014)

Dishes include Green Tomato Cha Cha (a type of zesty salad), Glazed Turnips with Pearl Onions & Brown Butter, Mackerel Croquettes, Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce, Southern Fried Chicken with Cream Gravy, Coconut Christmas Cake, and much more. Full-color photography enriches this sumptuous recipe treasury!
