Subtitle Southern-Inspired Home Cooking from a Northern Kitchen
Description Description “Justin uses his cooking to transcend geography, connect with his family, and share a bit of his history, and our history, with the world. Slow down, give it a read, and get cookin’.”
―Guy Fieri, host of “Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives” and “Guy’s Ranch Kitchen”
In 90+ soul-satisfying recipes, beloved Top Chef star, chef, and restaurateur Justin Sutherland offers his take on easy Southern-inspired home cooking…with a Northern Twist.
Justin owns multiple restaurants in the Twin Cities, though his reputation is national. You may know him from television, where he won an Iron Chef episode, competed on Season 16 of Top Chef, and is one of the chefs featured on Fast Foodies and is producer and host of Taste the Culture, both airing on TruTV/TBS.
In his highly anticipated first cookbook, Justin shares the inspiration and foundation behind his approach to his signature Southern cooking, which includes his upbringing in the Northern Midwest and the South, as well as his African-American and Asian heritage.
Northern Soul features his signature recipes for lunch, brunch, dinner, snacks, late-night meals, and cocktail recipes. Justin shares how you can make easy, traditional Southern recipes with a Northern flair, in your own kitchen. From recipes like Chicken and Waffles and Creole Jambalaya to Bourbon Pecan Pie with Maple Whip and Hot Mac and Cheese, plus spice blends, sauces, rubs and pickles, you’ll learn just how deliciously southern soul and northern heart blend.

“This book is a deep dive into soul food from a clear and fresh perspective, one that feels familiar and approachable, creative and craveable. Justin Sutherland beautifully demonstrates how food connects us all, but also is an integral part of how we can seamlessly celebrate our individuality together.
