The much-anticipated debut cookbook from two of the most admired and innovative young chefs in the South, with 100 recipes featuring their refined, classically-inspired takes on the traditional Southern food they grew up with.
In 2005, at the height of their celebrity and critical acclaim, Allison Vines-Rushing and Slade Rushing left high-profile Manhattan restaurants to return home to Louisiana and open their own place, just before Hurricane Katrina hit. Southern Comfort reflects Allison and Slade's fresh, distinctive brand of Southern cooking, such as Hush Puppies and Caviar, Seared Scallops with Andouille Thyme Butter, and Black-Eyed Pea Empanadas with Green Tomato Salsa, along with the story of their bittersweet homecoming and inspiring recovery from the devastation. Southern Comfort is modern in technique and execution, yet inspired by the traditions, flavors, and down-home philosophy that makes Southern food so appealing.
