Congratulations to Eric in Knoxville for winning this month’s giveaway! Thanks to all those that participated and be sure to check in next month for another great cookbook giveaway!
I believe there are two good indications that you’ve picked up an excellent cookbook; (a) Looking through it makes you hungry even if you just ate, and (b) you end up dog-earing more than half the recipes. This month’s cookbook giveaway (for me at least) easily meets those two criteria. Smoke & Pickles: Recipes and Stories from a New Southern Kitchen by Chef Edward Lee is one of the best new cookbooks I’ve picked up, and this month is your chance to add it to your bookshelf!
Amazon.com blurb: Chef Edward Lee’s story and his food could only happen in America. Raised in Brooklyn by a family of Korean immigrants, he eventually settled down in his adopted hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, where he owns the acclaimed restaurant 610 Magnolia. A multiple James Beard Award nominee for his unique patchwork cuisine, Edward creates recipes–filled with pickling, fermenting, frying, curing, and smoking–that reflect the overlapping flavors and techniques that led this Korean-American boy to feel right at home in the South. Dishes like Chicken-Fried Pork Steak with Ramen Crust and Buttermilk Pepper Gravy; Collards and Kimchi; Braised Beef Kalbi with Soft Grits and Scallions; and Miso-Smothered Chicken all share a place on his table. Born with the storytelling gene of a true Southerner, Lee fills his debut cookbook with tales of the restaurant world, New York City, Kentucky, and his time competing on Top Chef, plus more than 130 exceptional recipes for food with Korean roots and Southern soul.
