Award Winning Authors Showcase Cookbook and Downtown Woodstock Business

November 1, 2012

A celebration of the release of Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart’s new cookbook, “Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking,” will take place from 7:45 to 9:30 am at FREIGHT Kitchen and Tap. Good Day Atlanta will film a segment this Friday live from downtown Woodstock. The event will highlight FREIGHT’s southern roots by having Nathalie Dupree, famous and award winning cookbook author and southern chef, launch her new cookbook on Good Day Atlanta at the restaurant. The cookbook is a collaborative effort from Nathalie and Cynthia to bring more than 750 tasty Southern recipes to kitchens around the Country.

In the book, Dupree and Graubart reveal the essence of food that delights, entices and satisfies, celebrating the “Mother Cuisine” of American cooking. The book is based on years of research, beginning with their first collaboration in 1985 for the PBS television series “New Southern Cooking.” The authors embrace the cookbooks and recipes of the past, enhancing them with the foods and conveniences of today.

At FREIGHT Kitchen & Tap, they have a team of culinary professionals who are excited to serve every guest that walks through their doors. They have taken a new look at regional southern cooking that makes for a great meal experience. FREIGHT’s approach is simple, they prepare food we all like to eat, and make drinks that are hand crafted while serving them with genuine southern hospitality. Their offerings are full of flavor and always fresh. FREIGHT works with local farmers and artisan food suppliers to serve a new kind of Southern fare. They are also conveniently located in Downtown Woodstock’s Historic Train Depot, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

FREIGHT is advancing Southern cooking in a way that pays homage to the past while still exploring the culinary future of Southern cuisine. This exciting event will feature a sampling from Dupree and Graubart’s most comprehensive cookbook ever. Freight Kitchen and Tap is a great setting to try out a few of the dishes, as some will be featured on their menu going forward.
