Erika Council’s Biscuit Tasting, Celebrating “Still We Rise”
Join Erika Council, the creator, recipe developer and photographer behind Southern Soufflé, for the release of her new cookbook, Still We Rise: A Love Letter to the Southern Biscuit with Over 70 Sweet and Savory Recipes.
Here, Erika has perfected traditional biscuit types alongside inventive new creations. Her recipes connect readers to stories of the family, friends, and Southern culinary icons who instilled in her a love of baking. This cookbook is a love letter to the Southern biscuit, honoring its place in Black culinary culture and beyond with over 70 delicious recipes.
Erika will be in conversation with Bill Smith, the former head chef at Crook’s Corner Restaurant, and we’ll be enjoying a small sweet & savory sampling from the cookbook in The Fearrington Barn on Sunday, August 27th from 3-5pm.
