About the book:
Andrea's Cooktales is an heirloom cookbook and journal meant to be savored, splattered, and shared. It features "New-Generation" Southern recipes that are unique, fun, and easy to follow. Special stories are behind every recipe in this book, which are meant to inspire your own memories and stories. Learn new recipes to be added to your weekday as well as holiday rotations. Recipes are both naughty (for splurging) and nice (for healthy eating). A Notes section is included for cooking/food questions and answers, as well as journal areas to write stories and enter family recipes intended to be passed on for years to come.
About the author:
Andrea LeTard is a Mississippi-raised, self-taught chef who calls Memphis home. Her recipes are what she likes to call "next-generation southern." They're upscale yet fun using fine, fresh, and sometimes unique ingredients, always with southern flair and a story or memory that inspired them. She is a true believer that the fondest memories are made in the kitchen, at the dinner table, and surrounded by food. Cooking is her passion, but, she says "it's not always about the food. It's about the company that surrounds me when food is present - the laughs shared over a good glass of wine and a nice meal, the memories made with every pot stirred and bite taken, and generations of passed down recipes and cooking tips."
