Nicola Miller

Editor and writer

Lewis carries the South in her heart and embarked upon a lifelong odyssey to recreate the flavours of her past in Virginia and introduce generations of people, especially Southerners, to the home cooking they have lost touch with. The granddaughter of a former slave, her writing and recipes have played a fundamental role in the revival of Southern food cultures.

These recipes are the ne plus ultra of Southern cooking. If you've ever wanted to try your hand at she-crab soup, Ms. Lewis' recipe is the one to use.

A wonderful, modern take on traditional southern cooking.
