“Kelly Fields bakes with the soul of a grandma, the curiosity of a student, and the skill of a master.”—Vivian Howard, author of Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Bon Appétit • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution • Garden & Gun
Celebrated pastry chef Kelly Fields has spent decades figuring out what makes the absolute best biscuits, cornbread, butterscotch pudding, peach pie, and, well, every baked good in the Southern repertoire. Here, in her first book, Fields brings you into her kitchen, generously sharing her boundless expertise and ingenious ideas. With more than one hundred recipes for quick breads, muffins, biscuits, cookies and bars, puddings and custards, cobblers, crisps, galettes, pies, tarts, and cakes—including dozens of variations on beloved standards—this is the new bible for Southern baking.
Who doesn’t love a good puzzle? And what sounds more satisfying than being able to eat your results afterwards? If you’ve ever tried cooking, you will be all too familiar with how puzzling certain recipes can be—from figuring out proper techniques to deciphering improper instructions. So why not make a game out of it?
In Hungry Games, former food editor Kate Heddings embarks on a journey to turn her recipe challenges into a game of recipe rehab, testing the skills of cooks who know it all by finding mistakes intentionally inserted into each recipe. Ranging from easy to difficult, these recipes contain both cooking mistakes (time, temp, quantities) editorial mistakes (out of order ingredients, spelling mistakes, etc.), and brings some fun back to cooking. Paired with traditional food-themed crossword puzzles and word search games, Hungry Games is perfect for every avid cook or puzzle fan—and gives the phrase “playing with your food” new meaning.
