Publisher Comments:

Bourbons popularity derives from its folklore nearly as much as from its flavor. Fred Thompson is a food writer who adores this venerable drink, and his Bourbon: 50 Rousing Recipes for a Classic American Spirit lays it all out—the history, the legends, the recipes, plus helpful tips and tricks, all accompanied by stunning four-color photos. Recipes include classics (Manhattan, Ward 8), new favorites (Lynchburg Lemonade, Bourbon Chocolate Martini), hot or cool concoctions (Hot Chocolate “Nog,” Lemon Cooler), and drinks for a crowd (Whiskey Sour Punch, Mint Julep Sparkler). Theres even a chapter featuring delicious ways to cook with bourbon, with dishes such as Salmon with Bourbon Glaze and Freds Bourbon Balls. Straight up, mixed in a cocktail, poured in a punch, or whipped into a recipe—however you enjoy it, bourbon is an old favorite thats new again.

About the Author

Fred Thompson is a writer and food stylist who divides his time between Raleigh, North Carolina, and New York City. His career has taken him to the North, but Thompson remains true to his Southern roots, holding fast to his accent and love of all things Southern—especially food. Thompson trained at the Culinary Institute of America and became involved in print and television advertising before starting his own catering business in Raleigh, which he ran from 1988 to 1994. Today, Thompson works as a freelance food stylist, cooking instructor, and food, wine, and travel writer, and runs his own product- and recipe-development business. Thompson has written several cookbooks, including Iced Tea, Lemonade, Crazy for Crab, Barbecue Nation, and Hot Chocolate. Thompson publishes Edible Piedmont magazine, which focuses on food in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, with his wife, Belinda Ellis, who serves as the magazines editor. He has been featured on NPR, and is a spokesperson for Lipton Cold Brew. Thompson writes “The Weekend Gourmet,” a bi-weekly column in The Raleigh News & Observer. His work has appeared in Family Circle, Wine & Spirits, Fine Cooking, and Every Day with Rachael Ray. Thompson is also a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and the Southern Foodways Alliance.
