Chef Jeff Cooks picks up where Cooked left off with recipes that Jeff has developed by blending the traditional southern comfort food he grew up on with the culinary sophistication he’s learned as a professional chef. The book offers a wide variety of dishes including basics like stocks and broths. Each recipe is prefaced with an anecdote or a story about some of the people you’ll remember from Cooked.

Chef Jeff's story is inspiring. I highly recommend his autobiography, Cooked, which tells of his journey from being a prisoner to being the executive chef at the Cafe Bellagio in Las Vegas. His cookbook is a mixture of down home Southern food and healthy fresh ingredients. He tells stories about his life along with the recipes.
