Check out my latest cookbook review for Capital Cooking. Ruby Dee Phillipa, author of Ruby’s Juke Joint Americana Cookbook, may be the most interesting person to write a book like this that I’ve ever seen. Not all the recipes live up to their author’s outsized personality, but if you’re looking for a new turkey and stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving this year, you’ll want a copy. The Roast Turkey with Maple Herb Butter and Cider Gravy sounds amazing, and the Wild Mushroom Stuffing is something I’ll make the next time I’m roasting a chicken. My mother always says that a cookbook is worth buying if you get even one great recipe out of it, and this one has two.
