A Taste of the Good Ol' South
At the height of their celebrity acclaim, chefs Allison Vines-Rushing and Slade Rushing left Manhattan for home in Louisiana to open a restaurant, called MiLa, just three months before Hurricane Katrina hit. The couple’s Southern Comfort: A New Take on the Recipes We Grew Up With reflects their fresh brand of Southern cooking that made MiLa a success despite difficult times. Featuring over 100 recipes, Southern Comfort offers refined classic Southern food, such as Hush Puppies, Caviar, and Seared Scallops with Andouille Thyme Butter. The book also offers signature dishes, such as Oysters Rockefeller “Deconstructed”, which have traveled from New York to Louisiana to this book. Allison Vines-Rushing and Slade Rushing’s Southern Comfort: A New Take on the Recipes We Grew Up With is available online and in stores for $35, full mark-up.
