I am so excited to share with y'all that my cookbook, Deep South Dish Homestyle Southern Recipes, is just about here! Isn't the cover pretty? For those of you wondering "where's the beef?" it's representative of one of our favorite Southern dishes - the vegetable plate - and is actually one of my personal photos and all of my personal recipes! The publisher thought that it was a perfect cover for a spring launch and so do I. Don't worry though - there's plenty of meat protein dishes inside and a few of them are even featured on the back cover too! (Fried chicken anyone?)
Never in a million years when I lost my job - and frankly my entire career - to a hurricane named Katrina, did I have any idea that I would find myself where I am today ... and now a published cookbook author too. No matter how down and out things seems folks, never give up. He might just have bigger plans for you too.
I am happy to announce that I will be on QVC's "In the Kitchen with David" segment on Sunday, April 19, 2015 for an exclusive launch opportunity ... so be sure to save the date to be the first in on getting a copy! Note that this is a change in date from that previously announced.
I'm about as nervous as nervous gets about being on live TV, but I love QVC (well my whole family does), so I'm very familiar with the network and I know I'll feel right at home. I'm just gonna pretend I'm talking to y'all as if you were in my kitchen, well just as I always have done here on Deep South Dish, and bootstrap my way through it. If you're a Southerner, you know exactly what that means!
My heart is so full y'all and I am thrilled with the cookbook. As a blogger you can't help but tear up when you see your hard work in a printed book. Quail Ridge Press, a Mississippi company, and one that ironically published one of the very first cookbooks I ever reviewed as a blogger, made a cookbook that is a true reflection of my blog and I thank you all for your part in making this happen. You are indeed the entire reason it did and I truly hope that it is everything you hoped it would be.
Save the date..
Sunday, April 19 on "In the Kitchen with David!"
