Natural style comes from the heart and soul. Celebrities hire teams to portray an appearance which may or may not be genuine. You really take notice when you find someone who’s style naturally comes from within. There is a chef in Atlanta who’s food, restaurants, and market all have a simple, elegant, and relaxed style. You feel welcome when you walk in the door. Dining at her restaurants is a true culinary experience. It is why I was thrilled when Anne Quatrano’s new book Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality arrived at my door. I immediately looked through the book and one recipe caught my attention; Meyer Lemon Gelato.
The book goes way beyond a typical cookbook. It takes you through the seasons with recipes, entertaining ideas, and more. The photography is stunning. Summerland is the name of Anne’s family farm which supplies much of the produce for her restaurants. It is farm to fork at it’s finest. I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Bacchanalia and it is one of the best meals I’ve had. Each course was perfectly executed and brilliantly paired with wine. I’ve experienced Anne’s cooking and now I can make her wonderful recipes at home.
Meyer Lemon Gelato has few and simple ingredients. Milk, cream, eggs, sugar, and fresh Meyer Lemon juice and zest. Preparation is easy with her instructions. Before you know it, you have a smooth, creamy, sweet frozen treat. It is the perfect ending to a fall meal which is detailed in the October section of the book.
Is there a chef in your area that is inspiring with their style? Anne is certainly one in my area. Be sure to visit her restaurants and market if you are in Atlanta. Meanwhile, I recommend her beautiful book and you can get it on Amazon by clicking the photo of it (affiliate link).
