Lifestyle guru, TV personality and restaurateur B. Smith debuts her first comprehensive cookbook filled with 200 recipes she has mastered throughout her amazing career this week. With her trademark casual yet elegant approach, B. Smith Cooks Southern-Style explores the cuisines of the American South (which includes Cajun, Creole, Soul Food, and at least one hundred and one ways to use smoked pig.)
From beginning to end, B. Smith takes the reader on a trip through a culturally rich and diverse history of ingredients, flavors and textures of Southern cuisine—all while lightening up traditional southern dishes and in true B. Smith style, giving tips on how to entertain like a pro.
Not your average “meat and potatoes” guide, with delicious recipes like BBQ Root Beer Pulled Pork, Spicy Tomato Shrimp Grits, Grilled Okra and Roasted Tomato Salad, Sweet Bourbon Corn Pudding, Oven Baked Buttermilk Chicken, Coconut Pecan Cake and even Country Style Alligator Sausage Patties & Gravy, Smith’s recipes are a perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
B’s book is available now at national retailers such as Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and Borders.
You can watch B. Smith demonstrate one of her new recipes on NBC’s “Today Show” on Thursday, November 5th!
