Southern food is one of the most beloved and delicious cuisines in America, and one that Sean Brock, who has been called "the most conspicuously gifted American chef of his generation" (Time), thinks should be considered among the most revered cuisines of the world. In South, the award-winning chef and Southern-food crusader shares his recipes for key components of the cuisine, from grits and fried chicken to collard greens and corn bread. Regional differences are highlighted in recipes for shrimp and grits, corn bread, fried chicken, and more. This is the book fans of Sean Brock have been waiting for, and it's the book Southern-food lovers the world over will use as their bible.

"Brock wears his Southern heart on his sleeve in this mouthwatering, virtuosic collection.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

South is a game changer and could be called The Southern Bible of Cooking. Sean has created one of the most beautiful and powerful books on Southern food ever written.” —Frank Stitt, chef/owner and author of Frank Stitt’s Southern Table
