The curated kitchen: new cookbook Tupelo Honey Cafe and recipe

From the Tupelo Honey Cafe, a chain that started in Asheville and spread across the North Carolina and Tennessee, we get Tupelo Honey Cafe: New Southern Flavors from the Blue Ridge Mountains cookbook. Broken into sections with whimsical titles such as Porcine Love and Get your Daily Grind and generously studded with color photographs of the region, recipes include red onion marmalade, blackberry pie, stroganoff y’ all, fried green tomatoes, and shrimp cakes with roasted garlic aioli. Interested in trying one? There is a recipe after the jump just for you. When you eat it, I suggest you imagine yourself nestled in the blue-gray bosom of the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains.
