Paul and Angela Knipple sign THE WORLD IN A SKILLET

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 5:00pm
Paul and Angela Knipple, members of the Southern Foodways Alliance, wish to share their passion for Southern food with others. They are experienced food writers (having written extensively for publications such as the "Memphis Flyer" and "Edible Memphis"), but this is their first book. Southern cooking often brings to mind dishes with influences from West Africa, Europe, and Native Americans. The Knipples successfully expand this view of Southern cooking to represent today's multicultural South. Although some recipes are included, the focus is on the chefs and their personal stories. Highly recommended for regional cooking collections.
