The Lee Brothers - Matt and Ted - will visit The Alabama Booksmith in Homewood tomorrow (Thursday, December 13) at 5 p.m. and sign copies of their book, The Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook: Stories and Recipes for Southerners and Would-be Southerners. The cookbook won the James Beard Award, and the brothers are featured in this month's Southern Living magazine. Southern author Pat Conroy (and a cookbook author himself) says, "The Lee Bros. have written the classic Southern cookbook. They write with flair, brilliance, and hilarious commentary on the recipes, customs, and eccentricities of the South they celebrate with such passion. Their recipes are so good that I believe cookbook writers like the Lee Bros. may turn Southern cooking into an actual cuisine."
After the signing event at the Alabama Booksmith, they're making guest appearances at Highlands Bar and Grill, Bottega, and Hot and Hot Fish Club, which will feature recipes from the book on the evening's menu.
As a special treat, the Booksmith will be serving The Lee Brothers' World Famous Boiled Peanuts during the signing. For more information, call 870-4242.
