I loved this book. The recipe headnotes are like the best travelogue, and the recipes themselves are fully-flavored and approachable.

His technique for making dark roux worked flawlessly for me on the first try, and while adding goat cheese to grits might make some southerners faint, it really is genius.

Highly recommended (I ended up buying an ebook copy)
