This cookbook has far exceeded my expectations! First, it's a beautiful cookbook just to look through. There are many color photographs of the local area, the restaurant, and of course the delicious meals. But the recipes - oh my goodness!
I love the salad they serve at the cafe and one simple but amazing component would be the sweet pickled onions. I assumed they purchased them, but now I know they make them and now I can, too! The salad dressings are far from ordinary. I've already tried the Pecan Vinaigrette and it's addictive! I'll soon try the Smoked Tomato Vinaigrette and will use their technique for oven smoking the tomatoes. I've used my stove top smoker to smoke tomatoes in the past, but their oven technique sounds like it makes more sense.
The recipes in every section of this cookbook are just as amazing. You'll find southern classics with an upscale twist. Mac and Cheese Casserole with Goulda. Fried Green Tomato and Grilled Portobello Sandwich with Basil Roasted Red Pepper Mayonnaise. Chicken Apple Meat Loaf with Tarragon Tomato Gravy. You'll just faint when you see the recipe for Tomato Pie! And of course the day won't be complete without a slice of Chocolate Pecan Pie.
This is my new favorite cookbook and I can't recommend it highly enough. The recipes make use of the freshest ingredients - nothing fancy or hard to find - and are easy to follow. You don't have to be a chef to prepare them. I'm having so much fun with it, and am giving a copy to Mom for Mothers Day!
