Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from my Corner of the South (Hardcover) (Vivian Howard)
About this item
The definitive Southern cookbook for a new generation from the star chef and co-creator of PBS's A Chef's Life
Deep Run Roots is Vivian Howard's comprehensive record of modern Southern cooking, filled with stories and more than 200 recipes that celebrate the flavors of her eastern North Carolina home.
Featuring Vivian's favorite simple family dishes, memorable meals from her award-winning restaurant, and time-honored traditional preparations, this cookbook is a culinary love letter to the region she has spent her life discovering-an ambitious, once-in-a-generation book that belongs on the shelf next to Edna Lewis's The Taste of Country Cooking and Alice Waters's The Art of Simple Food.
Alongside vivid stories and helpful advice, Vivian offers recipes for every interest and skill level, including:
- Foolproof dinners like Blueberry BBQ Chicken, Tomatoes and Rice, Country-Style Pork Ribs in Red Curry-Braised Watermelon, and Country Ribollita,
- Crowd-pleasers like Butterbean Hummus, Tempura-Fried Okra with Ranch Ice Cream, Pimiento Cheese Grits with Salsa and Chips, Dirty Faro, Winter Caviar, and Cool Cucumber Crab Dip,
- Show-stopping desserts like Warm Banana Pudding, Peaches and Cream Cake, and Pecan Chewy Pie,
- And other dishes that will send you straight to your kitchen.
