From the Publisher: MasterChef winner Whitney Miller shares her favorite family recipes with her own unique flair, making them lighter and infusing them with global flavors.

Following her great-grandmothers’ examples of creatively stretching meals during the Great Depression, Whitney Miller transforms recipes from her Southern roots, preserving flavors of traditional family dishes while offering the excitement of her own special touches. She offers a taste of her family table with dishes like Southern Horchata, PB&J Chicken Satay, Dehydrated Okra Chips, Sweet Corn Grit Tamales, Peach Bread Pudding with Sweet Tea Rum Sauce, and much more. Using new techniques and cooking methods, Miller reimagines classic recipes and experiments with flavors from around the world, inspired by her travels since winning MasterChef.

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes Worth Getting in the Kitchen For? Yes. This is a nicely formatted cookbook with photographs and well spaced recipes. Sweet corn grits, pb&j chicken satays and dill tuna salad are favorites while I am still gearing up to make the more complicated Sweet Corn Grit Tamales with Barbecue Shrimp and Corn Salad. What I like about this cook book is that there are recipes that range from easy like tuna salad to the more sophisticated and complicated.
