Born and bred a Southern woman, I appreciate the generations of women who have passed down hospitality, traditions, and recipes. My twenty years as a cake designer, have afforded me my own tribe of Southern food experts including my dear friend, Southern Author, Pat Branning.
Pat is an entertaining expert and author of several Southern Lifestyle Books. Each coffee-table book is museum-quality, and highlights Southern Artists and Storytellers as well as the traditions of a Southern table. Even though I love them all, my current obsession is the Shrimp, Collards and Grits Series. Be sure to get yourself one. Make yourself some sweet tea and peruse one on a summer evening. They make perfect hostess gifts, too.
