Basic to Brilliant Y'all
My brother gave me Virginia Willis' Basic to Brilliant, Y'all: 150 Refined Southern Recipes and Ways to Dress Them Up for Company cookbook for Christmas, and I've spent the last several days reading it. For anyone who wants to elevate your cooking, then I highly recommend this cookbook. I love how she explains techniques and offers helpful hints. I can't wait to get cookin'! This is a teaching cookbook, and I always like to learn!
I just discovered Virginia Willis, and apparently her first cookbook Bon Appetit, Y'all: Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking was a huge hit. (Honey if you're reading this, then stop reading here.) I think I'll need to go buy it!
