features the author of Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns and Other Southern Specialties: An Entertaining Life (With Recipes).
Join Julia Reed, author of several books on Southern entertaining and cuisine, as she takes you on a lively and very personal tour of the culinary and social South. A master storyteller, Ms. Reed will share her thoughts on good cooking and the lessons of gracious entertaining that pass from generation to generation. A Mississippi native and current resident of New Orleans, Reed is also a contributing editor at Newsweek, where she writes the “food and drink” column, appears regularly on CNN, and is a contributor to Garden & Gun, Conde Nast Traveler, ElleDecor, The New York Times, and Vogue, where she has written profiles on George and Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Carolina Herrera. Her books, “The House on First Street, My New Orleans Story,” “Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns, and Other Southern Specialties,” “Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena,” and “But Mama Always Put Vodka in Her Sangria,” showcase her unparalleled humor and delectable recipes. After the talk, attendees will nibble on ham biscuits, compliments of Louisiana native Chef David Guas of Bayou Bakery.
