      Thanks for everything you've done as coordinator, JoanN! There were some great books and discussion during your term. I look forward to delving into Stitt's book this month since I do own it and haven't made that much from it. Cheers!

        I just sent Frank Stitt's wife, Pardis, a note about the book being our cookbook of the month. Maybe we'll get personal input. I do not know either of them personally, I am not affiliated with the restaurant other than being a major fan. We are both members of Slow Foods and she heads up the Birmingham chapter. Hopefully I'll get a return visit next month on my way to Atlanta.

          Awesome...I live in Bham, and I always enjoy eating at Franks restaurants! And have read his cookbook, and it is a great book. If you are ever in the area any of his 3 restaurants are worth a stop.

            I spotted reference to Frank Stitts book in an article in Food and Wine Magazine. My Daughter in law is from Birmingham she confirmed that Frank Stitt was a passionate chef. To my surprise for my birthday I got an autographed Southern Table book and have put it to good use since. In a word...wonderful!
