We've invited September's Cookbook of the Month authors to be experts in residence on Chowhound. We're very pleased to introduce Virginia Willis and Martha Foose, who will be answering questions for a week (officially starting Sept. 26) right here.
The September Cookbook of the Month threads have been going strong, and if you haven't been involved you can catch up here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/648986
But you don't have to have kept up with the threads to ask questions of Martha and Virginia. They're Southern food experts, and they are happy to take questions about Southern food in general, or specifically about their cookbooks and recipes.
Martha Foose is the author of "Screen Doors and Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook" (Clarkson Potter, 2008).
The book was the winner of the 2009 James Beard Award for American Cooking and Best Cookbook of 2009 by SIBA, the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. Martha lives in the Mississippi Delta with her husband and son. For more on Martha, visit http://www.marthafoose.com
Virginia Willis is the author of the acclaimed cookbook "Bon Appétit, Y'all! Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking" (Ten Speed Press, 2008).
She is a featured chef in "Atlanta Cooks at Home," a tester and editor for "The All New All Purpose Joy of Cooking," author of "Pasta Dinners 1,2,3," coauthor of "Home Plate Cooking," and a weekly writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Her work has also appeared in Country Living, Family Fun, and Edible Atlanta. For more on Virginia, visit http://www.virginiawillis.com
