The Bright School Parents’ Association presents Fork Knife Spoon, a collection of Chattanooga’s favorite recipes in commemoration of Bright School’s Centennial.
Published by Wimmer Cookbooks, Fork Knife Spoon features more than 250 simple yet sophisticated recipes featuring ingredients that utilize the bounty of local harvests. The recipes are arranged in ten chapters celebrating the past ten decades of Chattanooga history. These recipes are accompanied by glimpses of places, products and people that have shaped Chattanooga in the past 100 years. Through the pages, the true flavor and feel of our lovely city emerges.
The group recognized the unique contributions from local restaurants. Recipes are included from 212 Market, Black Creek Golf Club, Café on the Corner, Table 2, Easy Bistro, Urban Stack, St. John’s, Blue Plate, Taco Mamacita, Vine Street Market, Terminal Brewhouse, Public House, Mt. Vernon Restaurant, Chattanooga Golf & Country Club and Bluewater Grille.
Local artist Carylon Killebrew painted the lovely artwork that graces the cover of the book. In addition, the beautiful photographs of local landmarks that serve as the recipe section dividers were taken by Artists Eye Photography, owned by Bright parent Carissa Margio and Jessica Sebes. Proceeds from the sale of Fork Knife Spoon will benefit the children of Bright School through the work of the Parents’ Association.
Fork Knife Spoon is available for purchase at The Bright School at 1950 McDade Lane, and online at Amazon.com. The book retails for $30 each.
