This Week’s Cookbook: A New Turn in the South
Cookbook Overviews / June 4, 2018

A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen by Hugh Acheson is a cookbook that I’ve had for awhile now and barely used. It does have a good deviled egg recipe (which I will share later), but there wasn’t much else in it that really jumped out at me. I decided to give it a closer reading, and I got a little annoyed because the author seemed to have some real hipster tendencies. Of course a lot of cookbook authors (especially chefs), like to talk about how you have to use the best (read: expensive and hard to find) ingredients, but Acheson even chastises people who buy cut up cauliflower at the grocery store. I mean, I probably wouldn’t buy that because of the cost,  but I really doubt cauliflower tastes any different if it’s cut up at the grocery store or at your house. And if you are eating cauliflower, I would say that’s a win. Anyway, I was complaining about this book to my husband. He picked it up and started reading out loud recipe titles that were appealing to him, so I decided to give this book another try. Hugh Acheson is the chef…
