Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child, prepared lunch for President Clinton, and catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda. She began her culinary career tossing pizzas in college, has since foraged for wild herbs in the Alps, made mustard in Dijon, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily, but it all started in her grandmother’s country kitchen. She is the author of newly released Lighten’ up Y’all, Bon Appétit, Y’all and Basic to Brilliant, Y’all, Okra: A Savor the South Cookbook, and Grits by Short Stack Editions.
