Today is day two of the photo shoot for the Southern Plate Cookbook, which is being published by Harper Collins and will be in all major bookstores (and more) in the fall of this year.
The cookbook will feature stories, recipes, and plenty of gorgeous food photography as well family photos of some of my wonderful grandparents whose recipes will be included. The photography crew is truly amazing and I can’t wait for you to see the final outcome!
All day yesterday, my husband Ricky took photos on his iphone of the shoot as it was taking place and posted them on the Southern Plate Facebook page to share with y’all. If you’d like to see them, head on over there now and please join the page, we’d love to have you! He’ll be doing the same today so tune in as he updates throughout the day. The crew is set to arrive in about half an hour and I just got apple spice muffins from the oven so the kitchen smells yummy! I have two big old crock pots of beef stew that have been going all night long to feed everyone for lunch and of course there’ll be plenty of sweet tea!
Join us today on the Facebook page if you can. It’s thanks to you that this book is going to happen!

Christy 🙂

  1. Are you going to Notify US when your cookbook comes out and is available? Maybe an early bird special online…before the stores?
    Just a thought.

  2. Hey Christy! This is so exciting! I ordered your first cookbook for myself and during Christmas my family saw it and now they want one. Is there a way for me to get a copy of your first cookboo? I would love to buy more and will certainly be getting copies of your new one when it comes out. I am so excited for you.
