The Zest: Foodie Gift Ideas And Celebrating Edna Lewis

Jul 31, 2019

While Chef Edna Lewis may have passed in 2006, her legendary recipes and love affair with all things Southern led us to explore her cookbook.   She was farm-to-table fresh before that was even a thing. 

The “Grande Dame of all things Southern” went from a primitive Virginia farm house to owning one of Manhattan's most popular restaurants frequented by celebrities and trend setters, and left quite a legacy in her cookbooks and advocacy.  Janet Keeler gives us a rundown on a recently released cookbook filled with Chef Edna's recipes Grandma would approve of.

We also chat with lifestyle blogger Krayl Funch about great foodie gifts to make and give.  Fresh ideas that even Martha Stewart will take note of!
