ANNOUNCING THE NEW
LOCAL PALATE COOKBOOK MARKETPLACE

     A cook’s greatest tool isn’t a kitchen scale, seasoned cast iron skillet, or even a custom-forged knife. From the need-no-oven snacker to the professional chef, a well-written cookbook will benefit any cook as it offers a trove of tips, techniques, and inspiration from the masters of the craft.

     The Local Palate Marketplace is thrilled to announce that, in addition to sauces, snacks, sweets, honey, and other premium ingredients, we now offer a robust library of Southern cookbooks and literary tools to provide cooks and food lovers alike with recipes, stories, and profiles essential to Southern cuisine and the people who pioneered it.

     Our diverse selection spans the literary works of Southern food’s figureheads—from Edna Lewis to Nathalie Dupree and Sean Brock to John T. Edge. And it’s not just cookbooks: Get lost in researched explorations of regional foodways and food histories. Find the best dining destinations around the South through the city guides written by the Writers and chefs that make them great. Learn from pitmasters as they divulge their smokehouse tips and tricks. Get to know your favorite chefs through their interviews with writers and food journalists, or read about them through their own lens in our vast collection of chef’s memoirs.

    Start with our curated collections including the Local Palate staff favorites, the must-reads for all things smoked and barbecued, conversations surrounding the African diaspora, and so much more. We’re regularly adding new titles to the list, so check frequently to find your next source of cooking inspiration, gift for friends, or addition to your coffee table collection.
