Born in Memphis and now living in Atlanta, Webb, aka Miss Quad, is a talk show host and entrepreneur—who also knows her way around the kitchen. The recipes in this debut are steeped in Southern flair, but this is more than a comfort food cookbook. While it includes staples such as fried green tomatoes, deliciously carb-loaded cheese casseroles, and barbecue dishes, readers will also find several recipes with fresh, modern flavors (e.g., the peach, fig, and arugula salad with spicy lemon honey vinaigrette). Ingredient lists are short and unfussy, and every recipe is accommodated by beautiful full-page color photographs. A thoughtful introduction provides tips for stocking a pantry and setting the mood for a perfect meal. The book is capped off with seven sophisticated yet surprisingly simple cocktails. While fans of Webb know this past year has not been easy on her, her recipe book shows her strength as a woman and a chef.
VERDICT Fans and Southern food enthusiasts alike will enjoy the “relaxed but exciting” takes on Southern favorites.
