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."

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
