Cooking with Tupelo Honey
Tupelo's cookbook authors stopping in Charlotte
If you hadn't heard from our own lovely article, Tupelo Honey – the Asheville eatery that has spread its claws into the southeast and brought fresh farm and southern flavors with it – not only allows its chefs to cook great meals, but encourages each home cook to get in the kitchen with two cookbooks. The most recent food guide, called New Southern Flavors from the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers recipes like this amazingly decadent Breakfast pie … om nom nom.
On Thursday, May 22, Chef Brian Sonoskus and Elizabeth Sims, both of who authored the newest cookbook, will visit Charlotte for two cookbook signings. The first signing will take place at Tupelo Honey Cafe, located at 1820 South Blvd, from 4 pm to 5 pm. The second will be hosted at Park Road Books, located at 4139 Park Rd, from 7 pm to 8 pm and will feature samples from some of the recipes.
The new cookbook features 125 recipes that showcase the diversity of Tupelo Honey’s menu in addition to many of the ingredients, dishes and traditions that make up the Mountain South region. From beverages like the Lohito and the Appalachian Limoncello, to Dressed Up for Company Onion Casserole and savory dishes like Acorn Squash Stuffed with Bacon Bread Pudding, the cookbook delivers simple yet creative recipes designed to bring people together.“Our first cookbook focused more on Asheville and a lot of our fans’ favorite recipes, but this edition really looks at our unique region, the Mountain South,” said Sonoskus in a press release. “These are recipes that feature ingredients that you'll find right here in Charlotte and that might spark a memory or two of dinners at grandma’s house, but perhaps with a tweak or two as we tend to do at Tupelo Honey Cafe.”
