Coming Soon: Kitchen Bookshelf

Periodically I go through and survey my readers.  One of the items that has come up is cookbooks. As much as we here at Southern Roots Kitchen love to cook, we also love to read and explore cookbooks. We are going to kick off our ‘Kitchen Bookshelf’ segment in a few weeks. This will segment will feature cookbooks from authors you may know and some you may not.

We will review each cookbook, select recipes from book and try them ourselves. We will then post the recipes and the cookbook information on our blog so you can check out what we did. There will also be a link to the site where the cookbook can be purchased, so you can get your own copy.

If you or someone you know is working on a cookbook, or has a cookbook and would like it featured on ‘Kitchen Bookshelf’ please have them contact Kimberlee at southernrootskitchen [at] gmail [dot] com as soon as possible so we can get them on the calendar.
