Book Giveaway: Nancie Mcdermott, Southern Soups & Stews

I’m thrilled to be giving away 3 books this year to celebrate The Miami Book Fair! To find out more about the Fair and my personal recommendations for where to eat in downtown Miami, visit my blog here. I’ll be giving away the other two books in the next couple of weeks, so come back and check it out! Here’s the first one just in time for fall, I love soups and stews anytime of the year and I live in Florida.

I’m so honored to give away Nancie McDermott’s new cookbook, she connected with me a few years’ back and is such an inspiration. I’m in awe with all she’s accomplished, just thinking about producing a cookbook sends me into a shock wave. I can hardly believe she has published a total of 9 Asian cookbooks so far! I hope I get to catch a spot of lunch with her. What a neat lady, she’s such a go getter, full of great ideas and advice. I got a chance to meet Nancie, Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart when I introduced and moderated Southern Specialties at the Miami Book Fair this weekend. What an honor to meet these prestigious authors, so in awe of their accomplishments. I feel such a slacker.

Nancie will be on the panel, Southern Specialties, Sunday, Nov.22, 12-1pm,  building 6100.

Southern-Soups-and-Stews-COV-1024x933About Southern Soups & Stews…
Home cooks throughout the American South treasure time-honored recipes for hearty soups and satisfying stews savored year after year. Often passed down through the generations, the dishes detailed in this book are cherished and shared at family gatherings, holiday feasts, and community suppers throughout the seasons. These recipes serve up soups and stews seasoned with history—from Nathalie Dupree’s Lowcountry Okra and Shrimp Gumbo to Summer Squash Soup with Black Pepper and Thyme, to Collard Greens with Pot Likker and Dumplings—offering us a glimpse of how people farmed, cooked, and continue to celebrate life over time.

    We live on homemade soup most of the year.
    I make at least 2-3 big pots of soup each week. Our schedules are so crazy, but with soup in the refrigerator, you are only ten minutes away from a bowl of love.
