Mez Joseph

CHARLESTON, SC (Nov. 9, 2015) – In its first week of sales, THE SOUTHERNER’S COOKBOOK: Recipes, Wisdom, and Stories (Harper Wave; released October 27, 2015; $37.50, 320 full-color pages) has become the third consecutive book released by Garden & Gun magazine to reach The New York Times Best Sellers list. The cookbook is an heirloom-quality guide to the traditions and innovations that define today’s Southern food culture, with more than 125 recipes.

"Food has always been a cornerstone of G&G's coverage and Southern culture. Our cookbook reflects the past, present, and future with both traditional recipes and those that speak to the region's expanding foodways," says David DiBenedetto, senior vice president and editor in chief of Garden & Gun. "We wanted this to be a book that's truly representative of the South's vibrant food culture."

THE SOUTHERNER’S COOKBOOK dives deep into Southern food culture, with culinary contributions from James Beard Award-winning chefs like John Currence, Hugh Acheson, Ashley Christensen, Edward Lee, and Steven Satterfield, plus such keepers of small-town tradition as Louisiana's Alzina Toups and Charleston’s BJ Dennis. In addition, there are all-new recipes developed exclusively by Garden & Gun. Chapters include Party Bites and Appetizers; Chicken; Pork, Beef, and Lamb; Fish and Shellfish; Game; Vegetables and Sides; Baked Goods and Desserts; Condiments, Sauces, and Spreads; and Cocktails. Each chapter begins with an essay from one of G&G”s all-star roster of contributors, such as Julia Reed, Roy Blount, Jr., and Matt Lee and Ted Lee. Peter Frank Edwards, who collaborated on Sean Brock’s James Beard Award-winning cookbook, Heritage, photographed the book.

In recent years, Garden & Gun, the award-winning magazine that celebrates the best of Southern culture, has emerged as a leading lifestyle brand, with double-digit subscription and newsstand sales growth as well as continued success in the book publishing realm. G&G’s first book, THE SOUTHERNER’S HANDBOOK: A Guide to Living the Good Life, was published in 2013 to instant acclaim. GOOD DOG: True Stories of Love, Loss, and Loyalty followed in 2014.
