From the Inside Flap
Inspired both by her childhood on the family farm in Mississippi and her culinary training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, Jennifer Hill Booker has recreated and refined more than one hundred delicious Southern recipes. The dishes featured in Field Peas to Foie Gras: Southern Recipes with a French Accent celebrate the differences between these two types of cuisine while skillfully playing on their similarities, including the use of every part of a pig to flavor soups, stews, salads, and greens; a shared preference for local, farm-raised ingredients; and the technique of braising meats such as venison or rabbit with wine to bring out flavor.
The pages are sprinkled with Chef Booker's anecdotes of personal food memories. She has included straightforward instructions for everything from canning and preserving to rendering lard to cleaning greens to preparing the perfect Thanksgiving turkey. Enjoy savory Southern favorites such as Tomato and Okra Gravy and Glazed Turnips with Pearl Onions and Brown Butter. Feast on a variety of pork recipes, including Fresh Pork Sausage, and poultry and game dishes such as Hickory-Smoked Chicken Croquettes and Venison Stew. No dessert could be simpler or more impressive than Apple, Peach, and Pecan Galette; and, for a twist on the traditional cocktail, try unique recipes for Pomegranate Brandy and Winter Pear Wine.
Because Booker is a culinary arts instructor as well as a chef, cooking with Field Peas to Foie Gras is like having your favorite teacher in the kitchen with you.
