Book Review: Big Bad Breakfast by John Currence

Big Bad Breakfast: The Most Important Book of the Day by John Currence

About the book:
From the James Beard Award winner, Top Chef Masters contestant, and acclaimed author comes this fun, festive, and highly caffeinated ode to the joys and rituals of the Southern breakfast, with over 125 recipes inspired by the author's popular restaurant in Oxford, Mississippi.

John Currence is one of the most celebrated and well-loved chefs in the South. Among his string of highly successful restaurants in Oxford, Mississippi, Big Bad Breakfast holds a special place in diners' hearts: It is a gathering place where people from all walks come together to share the most important meal of the day, breakfast. Southerners know how to do breakfast right, and Currence has elevated it to an artform: dishes like Banana-Pecan Coffee Cake, Spicy Boudin and Poached Eggs, and Oyster Pot Pie are comforting, soulful, and packed with real Southern flavor. Big Bad Breakfast is full of delicious recipes that will make the day ahead that much better--not to mention stories of the wonderful characters who fill the restaurant every morning, and a meditation on why the Southern breakfast is one of America's most valuable culinary contributions.

My thoughts:
If you are looking for a true Southern cookbook, it doesn't get much better than this!  Big Bad Breakfast is full of funny stories, gorgeous food photography and mouthwatering recipes that prove breakfast is the best meal of the day no matter what time you eat it!  The recipes are super approachable for even beginner level cooks and everything we've made fro the book so far has been amazing!  Currence not only offers up some of his best restaurant-quality recipes, but he throws in a hefty amount of helpful kitchen tricks and tips as well making this book a great tool for the home chef.  One of my favorite cookbooks this year!
