At the core of chef Adrienne Cheatham's debut book is the deep sense that everyday moments should be appreciated, celebrated, and made special for those you love. In this stunning personal collection, Adrienne showcases her signature style of cooking, sharing more than 100 recipes that combine her family's Southern roots, her classical training in professional kitchens, and her distinct point of view, full of multicultural influences.
Adrienne captures the culinary essence of "Sunday best" with fresh but familiar recipes that include a feast-worthy pork roast crusted with pecans, charred okra roasted with tomatoes and warm spices, skirt steak topped with chimichurri of sharp mustard greens, and Brussels sprouts tossed with a nutty brown butter. She also shares tips and methods for upgrading classic, staple recipes into a dish worth talking about, like a roasted chicken that gets incredibly deep flavor from a marinade made with stout and soy sauce or a split pea salad that suddenly feels special when tossed with a bacon-sherry vinegar glaze.
Full of dishes that will soon be part of your own family's beloved repertoire, Sunday Best
will help you celebrate home cooking every day of the week.
