Cookbook – Southern Comfort: A New Take on the Recipes We Grew Up With, by Allison Vines-Rushing and Slade Rushing
The 100 recipes in Southern Comfort are said to “reflect Allison and Slade’s refreshing approach to regional cuisine, with its pitch-perfect blend of high and low,” with dishes like Hush Puppies with Caviar, Sweet Tea-Roasted Duck in Date Sauce, and their legendary Oysters Rockefeller “Deconstructed.”
I admit that my tastes run a bit simpler than caviar and duck. This “Today’s Recipe” feature from their cookbook thus fits my bill: inexpensive ingredients, easy to make, with a luxurious result (the raisins add the unexpected touch). One of these days soon, I have to get over to the couple’s New Orleans restaurant, MiLa. Mississippi (“Mi”) + Louisiana (“La”) + Chefs Allison & Slade is clearly a formula for a new brand of Southern-style comfort.
