Tupelo Honey Cafe Hosts New Cookbook Signings On May 8

Friday, May 2, 2014

To celebrate the release of their second national cookbook, Tupelo Honey Cafe: New Southern Flavors from the Blue Ridge Mountains, authors Chef Brian Sonoskus and Elizabeth Sims will be in Chattanooga on Thursday for two cookbook signings, just in time for Mother’s Day.  The first signing will take place at Tupelo Honey Cafe, located in Warehouse Row, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.  The second will be hosted at Mia Cucina from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. 

This new cookbook features 125 recipes that showcase the diversity of Tupelo Honey’s menu in addition to many of the ingredients, dishes and traditions that make up the Mountain South region.

  From beverages like the Lohito and the Appalachian Limoncello, to Dressed Up for Company Onion Casserole and savory dishes like Acorn Squash Stuffed with Bacon Bread Pudding, this cookbook delivers simple yet creative recipes designed to bring people together.

“Our first cookbook focused more on Asheville and a lot of our fans’ favorite recipes, but this edition really looks at our unique region, the Mountain South,” said Mr. Sonoskus.  “These are recipes that feature ingredients that you’ll find right here in Chattanooga and that might spark a memory or two of dinners at grandma’s house, but perhaps with a tweak or two as we tend to do at Tupelo Honey Cafe.”

The cookbooks will be on sale for $29.99, or a box set that includes a copy of the first cookbook is available for $54.99.  In addition to being a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, Tupelo Honey Cafe is honoring mothers with a $5 Bellini special all week, making May 8 a great pre-Mother’s day lunch and dinner celebration, the cookbook authors stated.

Mia Cucina is a high-end cookware store and demonstration kitchen located in the North Shore area in The Terrace building, 345 Frazier Ave.  During the signing event, there will be store-wide discounts, food demonstrations, samples of some locally made goods, mimosas in addition to cappuccinos, lattes and iced coffee drinks, compliments of Nespresso.  Parking is available in the CARTA lot behind the building or on the street.
