As Raleigh News & Observer food writer Bridgette Lacy says, “Sunday dinner, especially in the South, is more than a meal— it’s a state of mind.” Growing up at her beloved grandfather’s table in the Shenandoah Valley, she learned the joys of seasonal cooking, family ritual and community, as well as the role of kitchen compainionship in every dish that makes the meal. Join us to celebrate her Savor The South cookbook, Sunday Dinner. Our friends at The Chocolate Moose have put together a full menu of homey favorites from her recipes. And Bridgette will be on hand to share her memories, and spark our own.
