Christy Jordan: book signing and discussion
November 22, 2013
Blue Willow Bookshop presents Christy Jordan Friday, November 22, 5:00 p.m. Christy Jordan will discuss and sign her new cookbook, COME HOME TO SUPPER.
It’s a heartfelt celebration of family dinners—the comforting, delicious food that memories are made of—by the new doyenne of Southern cooking. Christy Jordan’s first book, Southern Plate (William Morrow), has 107,000 copies in print.
Conceived and written to reflect the reality of today’s hectic schedules—and the need to gather around the dinner table—COME HOME TO SUPPER offers more than 200 deeply satisfying dishes that are budget-minded, kid-friendly, and quick. These are the everyday meals that Christy Jordan most loves to cook, and her family most loves to eat, and she serves them up with generous helpings of her folksy wisdom, gratitude, and lively stories.
Many of the recipes make ingenious use of the slow cooker or a single pot or skillet; require easily found supermarket ingredients; and are packed with time-saving tips and shortcuts. And the menu, well, it’s all good, including Crispy Breaded Pork Chops with Milk Gravy, Beef and Broccoli, Spicy Fried Chicken, Craving Beans, Summer Corn Salad, Slow Cooker Baked Apples, Ice Cream Rolls, and Cinnamon Pudding Cobbler. Or to put it like Christy Jordan, food to make your family “smile louder.”
