Often I’ll settle on a recipe that’s from a celebrity chef or was inspired by a celebrity chef. It’s almost like a safety net for food quality. If it’s good enough for Julia Child, it’s good enough for me! This is especially true for Southern food. Some of the best, most popular celebrity chefs are from the South. They sure know how to come up with some awesome creations.
