Bridgette A. Lacy offers an ode to a meal that, notably in the Sabbath-minding South, is more than a meal. Sunday dinner, Lacy observes, is "a state of mind. It is about taking the time to be with the people who matter to you." Describing her own childhood Sunday dinners, in which her beloved, culinary-minded grandfather played an indelible role, Lacy explores and celebrates the rhythms of Sunday food traditions. But Lacy knows that, today, many who grew up eating Sunday dinner surrounded by kin now dine alone in front of the television. Her Sunday Dinner provides remedy and delicious inspiration any day of the week.

Sure to reward those gathered around the table, Lacy's fifty-one recipes range from classic southern favorites, including Sunday Yeast Rolls, Grandma's Fried Chicken, and Papa's Nilla Wafer Brown Pound Cake, to contemporary, lighter twists such as Roasted Vegetable Medley and Summer Fruit Salad. Lacy's tips for styling meals with an eye to color, texture, and a simple beauty embody her own Sunday dinner recollection that "anything you needed was already on the table."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Bridgette Lacy's book will appeal to all who are interested in southern cooking. For those who have fond memories of the Sunday dinner tradition, Lacy's wonderful voice comes through loud and clear as she encourages the continuing celebration of the tradition, richly describing dishes and conveying to the reader that Sunday dinners are a special treat no matter how small or how large your family.—Adrian Miller, author of Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time and winner of the 2014 James Beard Foundation Book Award in Reference and Scholarship

As Bridgette Lacy knows, for southerners the Sunday dinner is a sacred occasion no matter if or in which house we worship. Lacy brings us right up to the storied tables of her childhood, laden with the classic dishes that celebrate the week's achievements and offer us peace when we're dispirited. She is a born storyteller, and her depictions of Sunday dinner are so lovingly rendered that even the most hard-hearted, eat-to-live, agnostic among us are moved by the power of togetherness embodied in this meal.—Kelly Alexander, author of Smokin' with Myron Mixon and James Beard Journalism Award winner
