Virginia Willis, author of Bon Appétit, Y'all, has - you guessed it - an interest in both French and Southern cooking, having grown up on Southern food and been trained as a French chef.
Her new book combines both types of recipes with photos, stories and cooking tips. The recipes include Coca-Cola-glazed baby back ribs and coq au vin. Hmm...sounds like a strange, but interesting, combination.
She'll be speaking and demonstrating recipes at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 7. Central Market, 3815 Westheimer. For reservations, call 713-386-1700.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
