The new Italian food map, thanks to Andy and Michael: Alba in the north, Rome in the center, Memphis in the south.
John Currence
"Integrity, sincerity, dedication and honesty are all words that come to mind reading through Andy and Mikey’s first offering. These guys are part of the proud future of American regional food. This book is a must have for anyone interested in smart American interpretation of Italian country fare. Killer stuff in here. Really!"
John T Edge
"Full of righteous devotion to their hometown of Memphis, inspired by the cookery of their Italian grandmothers, Andy and Michael have staked out a compelling geography where Tennessee abuts Parma, sformato gets swaddled in neck bone gravy, and collards come perfumed with nduja. To get a handle on what the best American food looks, smells, and tastes like in this post-provincial moment, cook your way through this book.

Meet the Author

Andrew Ticer & Michael Hudman began their studies separately, at the University of Mississippi and Auburn University, respectively. Both inspired by big families, influential Italian grandmothers, and their long friendship, they embarked on their culinary training together at Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina, and then The Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary Studies in Calabria, Italy. Upon returning to Memphis, Andrew and Michael studied under a local master chef before opening their two restaurants, Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen in 2008, and Hog & Hominy in 2012, and have since earned much critical success. Together, Andrew and Michael were named semifinalists for the James Beard Foundation's Best Chef Southeast in both 2012 and 2013. Their second restaurant, Hog & Hominy, was named by GQ magazine as one of the Most Outstanding Restaurants of 2013. In addition, they were selected among nine others as Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs for 2013. Andrew and his wife Karie are expecting their first child in June 2013. Michael and his wife Katie have two children, Cory and Ellie.
