In Bon Appetit, Y'all: Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking, Virginia Willis reveals her passion for the cooking of the South
Long before Virginia attended the prestigious French cooking school École de Cuisine La Varenne, she shelled butterbeans alongside her mother and grandmother in their Georgia family kitchen. Informed by these divergent influences, Virginia has written a homage to the cuisine of her childhood.
From simple starters and slaws to generous entrées and desserts, Willis makes down-home cooking refined and haute cuisine friendly, with recipes like Vidalia Onion Soup with Bacon Flan, Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mama's Barbecue Sauce, Fried Catfish Fingers with Country Rémoulade, and Hot Vanilla Soufflés with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Brimming with stories, tips, techniques, and gorgeous photographs, Bon Appetit, Y'all seamlessly blends Willis' Southern and French roots into a memorable and thoroughly modern cookbook.
