Exclusively at The Cook's Warehouse - Virginia Willis has agreed to autograph a limited number of her books for our customers - just indicate if you would like signed or unsigned copies when you order.
Virginia Willis is a former producer of Martha Stewart Living and Epicurious television shows and a good friend to all of us at The Cook’s Warehouse, as well as many of our loyal customers.
Before she attended the prestigious French cooking school École de Cuisine La Varenne, Virginia Willis had been shelling butterbeans alongside her mother and grandmother in her Georgia family kitchen ever since she could stand on a stool. These divergent influences inform her passionate homage to the cooking of the South. From simple starters and slaws to generous entrées and desserts, Virginia 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, and Hot Vanilla Soufflés with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Brimming with stories, tips,techniques, and gorgeous photographs, BON APPÉTIT,Y’ALL seamlessly blends Willis’ Southern and French roots into a memorable and thoroughly modern cookbook.
"Most southern cookbooks, even the really good ones, usually feel and taste somewhat provincial as though their cuisine can only exist below the Mason Dixon line. Virginia Willis' cuisine is the opposite. Although her food is undeniably southern, it comes across as international, universal even. Other than Patricia Wells and Marcella Hazan, I cannot think of another cook who has managed to pull this off." - Alton Brown
