Gabriel will be at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock at 1 p.m. for a book signing event.
Gabriel is renowned for knowing a thing or two about cooking for Southerners, and in her latest book, she shares that knowledge through step-by-step cooking instructions for 35 iconic Southern recipes.
The author of two cookbooks, “Cooking in the South” and “Second Helpings,” cooks up Southern favorites every day at Gabriel’s, her restaurant and bakery in Marietta.
In “How to Cook Like a Southerner” Gabriel takes her Southern expertise to the next level, offering step-by-step photos for 35 of the most iconic Southern dishes, curating and testing more than 100 recipes from some of the best and most gracious cooks in the South, and offering tips to dress up even the most basic recipes for special occasions, according to the book shop.
“Johnnie Gabriel has visited FoxTale Book Shoppe several times through the years, and it’s always a treat,” said Ellen Ward, one of the owners of the book store. “Her cookbooks are practical, very Southern and her recipes just plain delicious.”
The new book makes a great gift book for brides, collectors and lovers of Southern food, Ward said.
“Johnnie will be serving up samples from this new book, and the event is free to attend,” Ward said.
FoxTale Book Shoppe is located at 105 E. Main St., No. 138, in Woodstock.
