Bon Appetit Y'all - Revised and Update Now Available for Pre-Order

YAY! SO excited. Do you need a new (paperback) copy? Let me tell you about it. 

Bon Appetit, Y’all (Revised and Updated) recipes including vegan and gluten-free biscuits — nearly 20 new photographs, and a heartfelt introduction that addresses and introduces Virginia’s health journey, weight loss, and how she balances some of the more indulgent classic Southern dishes with more healthy foods.

She’s also touched nearly every recipe in the book, lightening many up withless fat and oil. (Big exceptions are the country classics like Fried Chicken,Fried Fatback, and Fried Catfish!) In addition, each chapter contains aselection of new commentary in the form of “Fresh Takes,” which includesserving suggestions, how to transform to gluten-free, how to lighten up, and swaps for time-saving store-bought prepared ingredients instead ofchopping everything from scratch.

It’s more like how Virginia eats and cooks now in her home kitchen -a Mediterranean diet with a Southern accent.
