And I am looking forward to testing her Warm Summer Shrimp Salad next summer with our garden’s
heirloom tomato varieties. Speaking of heirloom, I
love that Willis just provides simple explanations to
readers being bombarded with today’s marketers
trying to sway them to make purchases with words
like artisan, heirloom, heritage and hormone-free.
But more about the recipes …
A weeknight classic like Mama’s Chicken Pot Pie
becomes sophisticated dinner party fare when it’s baked in a
winter squash, and Old Fashioned Stove Top Low-Country Broth
can be transformed into a Bouillabaisse-style broth with just a few
simple changes. Throughout the book, Willis paints a vivid picture
of her Southern upbringing, drawing readers in with her vibrant
tales of food and friends.
Your customers will love this book. And it will make for great
cross-merchandising vignettes this holiday season. Or better yet,
see if you can get Willis on your cooking school roster for next
year. I’m sure gonna give it a try!
