Being a born and bred southern, I found Hugh Acheson’s (a Canadian gentleman, btw…) new cookbook, A New Turn in the South utterly fascinated. This clever, idyllic chef and restaurant owner’s take on southern food will keep you hungrily turning page after page to see what he’ll come up with next. The book is beautifully designed and extremely well written. I learned many things from the peppy, fun cookbook but what stuck with me most was the many used of star anise, ramps and shrimp that I’d never considered. Hugh also seems to be particularly fond of all thing pickled. Grab this book is you’re tired of the same ol’ fried chicken, tater salad and buttermilk biscuit type of southern cookbooks because you’re in for a big, fat treat, ya’ll!
