One of the most famous Southern chefs is coming through South Florida this week—and she’s cooking. In honor of her new cookbook, “Secrets of the Southern Table: A Food Lover’s Tour of the Global South,” Georgia native Virginia Willis is collaborating with the Regional Kitchen’s chef owner Lindsay Autry for an old-fashioned Sunday dinner on July 29. The family-style menu, which is also available à la carte, reflects recipes from her book. Guests begin with crudité and feta buttermilk dip before a spread of Cajun meets Asian barbecue shrimp, skirt steak wit Vidalia onions, spicy mac and cheese, stuffed tomatoes and biscuits with Georgia peach jelly. A summery dessert of lemon icebox tartlets is the perfect ending on a humid night. Fans can get a signed copy of her book.
