Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table – Book Review
I have been a fan of Southern cooking my entire life and a fan of MasterChef since the show debuted in 2010. So, imagine my excitement when I learned that Whitney Miller – the first and youngest winner of MasterChef to date – has a new cookbook coming out!
Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table officially releases on November 3, 2015 but I just got my copy and I can’t wait to give you a first glimpse inside of this book!
My first impression?
Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table is a beautifully photographed cookbook that’s written with love and filled with a combination of classic and modern Southern recipes you will delight in serving your family and friends.
This book will make a wonderful gift for yourself and your friends. Be sure to order your copy now!
What makes Whitney’s brand of Southern cooking unique is the modern twist she brings to the kitchen. For example, Whitney often explores her family roots by revisiting her favorite family recipes and preserving traditional family flavors – but then, she makes the recipe her own by adding her own special touches.
Whitney is also fond of showing us how to lighten classic dishes without losing flavor. She loves to experiment with different Southern ingredients and to explore new techniques and cooking methods.
Whitney’s book isn’t just a collection of recipes from her family’s past, however – it’s also a reflection of her own unique culinary influences. In Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table, Whitney re-imagines Southern by introducing us to a number of new recipes that she creates by incorporating Southern ingredients into multi-cultural dishes she encountered during her travels around the world.
No matter what type of dish Whitney is sharing – classic or modern Southern cuisine – you’ll appreciate the personal stories, the beautiful plating and photographs, and the easy-to-follow instructions she provides.
Here is a sampling of some of the tantalizing recipes you’ll find in Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table:
- Sausage and Egg Pie
- Mini Quiche
- Crispy-Green Tomato Corncakes With Spicy Pimento Cheese
- Pulled Pork Nachos
- Smoked Brisket
- Baked Apple Hand Pies
- Toasted Coconut Cream Pie With Chocolate And Pecans
Whitney also provides a us with a list of well-stocked items that we should keep in our well-stocked Southern Pantry!
All in all, I truly enjoyed Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table. Although my kitchen bookshelves are full, I will definitely find a place in my kitchen for this wonderful cookbook!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Where Are They Now? MasterChef Winner Whitney Miller
About Whitney Miller
America’s first MasterChef winner, Whitney Miller, grew up surrounded by food, faith and family. One of the greatest influences in her life is her 96-year old grandmother, who still cooks to this day. She learned much from her great-grandmother about Southern hospitality and learned to be a great cook at an early age. Because of her talent with desserts, she was deemed the “Pastry Princess” on MasterChef.
Since winning the show, Whitney has travelled across the United States and around the world conducting cooking demonstrations with other celebrity chefs, acting as a celebrity judge for numerous cooking contests, and inspiring others through motivational speaking.
Whitney’s cooking style encompasses using fresh ingredients and putting her own modern twist on Southern classics. Her recipes have appeared in national publications such as People, Cooking Light, Spirit Of Women, and MasterChef magazine.
