Happy Friday! I’m sharing some cookbook love with a giveaway:
Celebrate the South’s favorite mayonnaise and learn how to cook with it in new delicious ways with this cookbook from food writer and Duke’s lover Ashley Freeman.
Mayonnaise is one of those polarizing culinary debates akin to putting pineapple on pizza. Those who do love mayonnaise know that no mayonnaise is more beloved than Duke’s, a Southern staple with a cult following that is expanding its reach north.
The Duke’s Mayonnaise Cookbook will show you how to make the most delicious chicken salad or deviled eggs — and introduce new approaches to everyday recipes. Think of what mayonnaise actually is: a beautiful emulsification of eggs, oil, and a touch of lemon for acidity, which are all elements vital to cooking and baking. Adding mayonnaise can help you make the flakiest pie crust, the fluffiest scrambled eggs, and the most delicious chocolate cake.
The Duke’s Mayonnaise Cookbook is a compilation of recipes inspired by author Ashley Freeman’s travels across the country. From classic favorites like Tomato Pie to unexpected dishes like Miso-Glazed Salmon or Sticky Toffee Puddings, you’ll discover how versatile the South’s favorite mayonnaise really is. And with stories and testimonials from beloved well-known chefs and food writers, The Duke’s Mayonnaise Cookbook is a must-have book for loyal fans and newcomers alike.
After over one hundred years, the Duke’s recipe remains the same as it was in 1917 when Eugenia Duke created it in her kitchen in Greenville, South Carolina. At the time, she didn’t realize the gold mine she was sitting on, but instead focused on the sandwiches she made using her homemade mayonnaise. Over the years her business sense allowed her to be a pioneer in the industry, and we have her to thank for the deliciousness that is Duke’s.
We’ve always had Duke’s Mayonnaise in the refrigerator as long as I can remember. To this day, Duke’s is the only mayonnaise we use and the quintessential condiment of summer’s favorite sandwich, the BLT!
I’m so impressed with the styling, beautiful photography and delicious recipes in this cookbook. There is plenty to tempt you for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
