One of our most anticipated Southern favorites this summer has been Joshilyn Jackson's new novel The Almost Sisters, for the way she engages essential and evolving small town Southern values with humor and grace. Meet Leia, a usually level-headed graphic novelist, who has one tequila soaked night with Batman at an Atlanta comiccon, and ends up expecting a baby. When she returns to the small Alabama town of her youth to face her conventional family, her drama becomes the least of their concerns, and the skeletons are, literally, falling out of the closet.
We're excited to have John Malik back in the kitchen for this culinary interpretation of Joshilyn's book, with equal attention to tradition and whimsy. (And maybe a little tequila of our own.)
