With nearly three decades of experience as a chef and restaurateur, Anne Quatrano uses her industry expertise and appreciation for seasonal Southern-influenced fare as the focus of her long-awaited cookbook. Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality is an ode to her family’s Georgia farm from which much of her four Atlanta restaurants source their produce. Organized by month, each chapter is centered on a seasonal celebration, complete with lush, sophisticated photographs of food and atmosphere alike.
