As a little girl in small-town Mississippi, Whitney grew up cooking at the elbows of true masters of Southern cuisine: her mother, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. From the secret to making perfect, flaky biscuits to the art of whipping up Sunday supper for a crowd, Whitney not only learned how to create much-loved dishes for friends and family but also discovered the most essential ingredient for any meal: hospitality.
In Modern Hospitality , Whitney offers a fresh take on classic dishes passed down throughout generations of Southern women. In addition to providing more than 75 original recipes that showcase regional ingredients and authentic flavors, Whitney also shares her stories of family, tradition, and suggestions for effortless entertaining.

I made the kind of mistake of buying the "Master Chef Cookbook," and it was delivered before Whitney's cookbook. I then worried that "Modern Hospitality" would be full of the same type of recipes as "Master Chef Cookbook. I mean - I'd only learn to cook like that if the Master Chef pantry was at my disposal every day. Fortunately, "Modern Hospitality" is, as promised, simple. There are few recipes with ingredients I'd consider exotic and the majority of them I will actually try, especially the "Cauliflower Mac 'n' Cheese.
Congratulations to Whitney for winning Master Chef and for a really nice cookbook! Oct 07, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: food-and-cooking , non-fiction. I liked Whitney quite a bit when she won MasterChef awhile back. I was very interested in her cookbook. The actual cookbook is a little too frilly and girly for me. It's very sweet. A little too sweet - I stared at the picture of Game-Day Chili served in dainty teacups.
That being said, some of the recipes looked quite good. Whitney cooks a lot with dairy products - lots of heavy cream. I don't cook with dairy much. If I did, the Cauliflower "Mac 'n' Cheese" looked intriguing. I did make a delicious dish called Braised Cabbage with Bacon and Onions. It was wonderful!

My cabbage quarters did not stay intact, but who cared? The chicken broth made the fried cabbage taste so good. I will make that again. I didn't have a sweet potato to mash so I used some frozen pureed butternut squash. I live at a high altitude so I decreased the sugar.
That may be why it puffed up like a cake. The picture shows a much more dense dessert. It's good though, just a bit too crumbly. So I liked this cookbook but there weren't a lot of recipes I wanted to make from it. Apr 22, Megan M rated it it was amazing. What a gorgeous, simple, truly Southern cookbook! I had no idea who this woman was, having never watched MasterChef, but I completely charmed by her beautiful smile and her delicious food.

Haven't tried the recipes yet but I loved the book. Met her August at Barns and Nobles at her book signing. Toss together the strawberries, blueberries, and bananas in a medium bowl. To serve, place each tart shell on a small plate. Spoon the fruit mixture into the shells. Drizzle with honey, if desired. Serve garnished with orange zest.

Makes 6 tarts Biscuits and Cane Syrup My great-grandmother used to make biscuits in a carved wooden bowl known as a "dough bowl," which is used for making bread in the South. The art of biscuit making was passed down through generations in my family. These biscuits have the perfect texture--flaky and delicate, with a crunchy bottom. They're delicious for breakfast with sweet syrup and can be paired with gravy for a satisfying, savory dish. My mom likes to enjoy her biscuits with softened butter and cane syrup mixed together! Place the flour in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut the shortening into the flour.
Stir in the milk until incorporated. Lightly flour your hands and form the dough into a ball. Divide the dough into 4 portions.
