Tupelo Honey authors making 2 Charlotte stops

Fans of Tupelo Honey, the Asheville-based restaurant that now has a location on South Bouleveard in Charlotte, may be interested in Tupelo Honey the book.

"Tupelo Honey Cafe: New Southern Flavors From the Blue Ridge Mountains" actually is the second book from chef Brian Sonoskus and Tupelo scribe Elizabeth Sims. This first focused on Asheville and on recipes from the restaurant that are fan

favorites. Sonoskus says the second book takes a wider look at the Mountain South region, including ingredients and traditions, as well as more recipes from the restaurant. The recipes include things like the Appalachian Limoncello, Acorn Squash with Bacon Bread Pudding and Dressed-Up Onion Casserole.

Sonoskus and Sims will do two signings on May 22 in Charlotte: 4-5 p.m. at the cafe, 1820 South Blvd., and 7-8 p.m. at Park Road Books, in the Park Road Shopping Center at Park Road and Woodlawn. The Park Road Books event will include samples of foods from the book.
