From Art Smith, Oprah Winfrey’s personal chef, comes a unique cookbook with more than 150 recipes to strengthen bonds between loved ones. Winner of the 2002 James Beard Cookbook Award for General category, Back to the Table aims to bring families back to the table and back to each other. Having spent most of his lengthy culinary career as a home chef to both celebrities and “regular” folks, Art Smith understands what foods bring them to the table. Here he celebrates families and brings us a collection of recipes that represent the very best of home cooking, including hearty Seafood Gumbo, Roasted Tomato and Cheddar Cornbread and Celebration Cakes, Perfect Pies and Little Sweets. Back to the Table is filled with delicious treats for any occasion. While there are many international offerings, Smith’s collection of recipes and ideas truly reflect his Southern Florida upbringing. There are cool drinks, southern stews with a bite, and cashews and pecans appear in all courses. These are Southern classics that have been served at homes for generations.
Family traditions built from cooking and enjoying good meals together, these are the stuff of memories of life. Art Smith encourages us to slow down, prepare a meal together, and sit down and enjoy our family time. His book is the perfect excuse to do just that.
