The soul food of America's Deep South is celebrated in this ground-breaking new cookbook. Chef Brad McDonald takes the food of his native Mississippi and from it extracts a world of fresh flavors, new spices, and dazzling colors. From cornbread to smothered catfish, pimento cheese to lemon icebox pie, from Cajun and Creole to the BBQ and smoking techniques of rural communities, this classic food has been given a contemporary edge—a neat spin on traditional soul food. With 100 recipes, stunning photography on location in Louisiana and Mississippi, and insights into the meaning of 'Southernness', Deep South provides a glimpse into a unique way of life—and a new take on a cuisine that has been so influential and yet relatively unchanged for generations.

Born in rural Mississippi, chef Brad McDonald worked under the acclaimed chef John Currence in his college town of Oxford, Mississippi. Brad went on to cook with Alain Ducasse, Thomas Keller, and at Per Se and Noma. In 2012 his first restaurant, Governor, in Brooklyn, New York, was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Brad came to London with his family and launched The Lockhart in London's Marylebone in early 2014, where his contemporary take on Southern cooking made him the toast of the town. In October 2015, he launched his second restaurant, Shotgun, in London's Soho, which focuses on authentic Southern barbecue and was voted the best new UK restaurant by The Times.
