Recipes from The Twisted Soul Cookbook

The Twisted Soul Cookbook

Deborah VanTrece’s Kansas City roots, wide travel, and celebrated career in Atlanta have gifted her with a uniquely rich way with food–keeping soulful recipes fresh and fun while honoring cultures, ingredients, and tradition. In her first cookbook, the Twisted Soul chef makes clear that soul cooking has always been as seasonally driven as la cucina povera, as versatile as California cuisine, and as impressive as French technique. In VanTrece’s hands, familiar components become dramatic and dynamic dishes, and classic recipes reveal surprising twists.

A table with colourful napkins, a plate with a slice of pie, a cup of coffee, and a yellow pie plate with a chocolate buttermilk pie that's missing one slice.

Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

A creamy, custardy pie that everyone who tested it, also ate it for breakfast. Pie is breakfast, people. Chocolate pie is better than dry toast, for sure.
