NYC folks: as a warm-up for our James Beard House dinner tonight, we’ll be at the Union Square Greenmarket today from 10am-12pm. Come to chat, get inscribed copies of our IACP-Award-winning cookbook, “The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern,” and enter to win a 12-pc Lee Bros. (HSN-exclusive) Canning Set in kale green, a rare color. Drawing at 12pm sharp!
If you missed our “Chef on a Shoestring” segment on the CBS Early Show this morning, here’s the link to the video. We rocked a five-recipe menu for 4 using all South Carolina grown fruits and vegetables, for under $40! Recipes are at the CBS website, too!
The IACP Best American Cookbook Award was given to “The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern,” announced this evening in Austin, Texas at the International Association of Culinary Professionals awards ceremony! Ted was present to accept the award, the second “Best American” for the Lee Bros. and the third IACP Award they’ve received–the other being the Julia Child Award for a first cookbook, for The Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook (W.W. Norton 2006). Kudos to all the fine nominees, and many thanks to Ben Fink, photographer, and Rica Allanic, the editor, to everyone who worked so hard on this book–and to all of you who cook from it! We so enjoy talking about the recipes with everyone we meet on the road. We wish you many great Southern meals to come! Best regards, Matt and Ted
