Thanks to author, registered dietitian, and television personality Carolyn O'Neil, now you can have your biscuits and eat them, too. In Southern Living's The Slim Down South Cookbook: Eating Well and Living Healthy in the Land of Biscuits and Bacon, the JBF Award winner shares menus and recipes that deliver authentic Southern flavor without the typical calories. Focusing on healthier ingredients such as peaches, pecans, okra, leafy greens, and sweet potatoes, O'Neil paves the way for a well-balanced Southern palate.
Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.
ENLIGHTENED EATERS is an educationally minded series of readings, workshops, discussions, and other programs focusing on health, nutrition, sustainability, and environmental issues.
