Smoke and Pickles

Recipes and Stories from a New Southern Kitchen

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Chef Edward Lee's story and his food could only happen in America. Raised in Brooklyn by a family of Korean immigrants, he eventually settled down in his adopted hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, where he owns the acclaimed restaurant 610 Magnolia. A multiple James Beard Award nominee for his unique patchwork cuisine, Edward creates recipes--filled with pickling, fermenting, frying, curing, and smoking--that reflect the overlapping flavors and techniques that led this Korean-American boy to feel right at home in the South. Dishes like Chicken-Fried Pork Steak with Ramen Crust and Buttermilk Pepper Gravy; Collards and Kimchi; Braised Beef Kalbi with Soft Grits and Scallions; and Miso-Smothered Chicken all share a place on his table. Born with the storytelling gene of a true Southerner, Lee fills his debut cookbook with tales of the restaurant world, New York City, Kentucky, and his time competing on Top Chef, plus more than 130 exceptional recipes for food with Korean roots and Southern soul.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 18, 2013 – Lee’s debut cookbook is an inventive and exciting take on Southern food inspired by the chef’s Korean roots. Raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Lee is the chef and owner of the restaurant 610 Magnolia in Louisville, Ky., (where he has lived since 2003). “All the lovely and resourceful traditions of the Southern landscape would propel me back to my grandmother’s spicy, garlicky foods,” explains the author. Recipes are combined with entertaining stories of Lee’s life and culinary journey. He begins with a chapter on rice and remoulade. Other whimsical chapters include Lamb & Whistles, Cows & Clover, Birds & Bluegrass, Seafood & Scrutiny (a reference to the chef’s run on the TV show Top Chef), and Pickles & Matrimony (“Pickles are a lot like love stories.... You worry that it’s not going to work out, but with patience, there is always a happy ending.” The book contains over 100 comfort-food recipes with an Asian twist, like a bourbon-and-Coke meatloaf sandwich with fried egg and black pepper gravy, miso-smothered chicken, pulled pork shoulder in black BBQ sauce, and fried trout sandwiches with pear-ginger-cilantro slaw and spicy mayo. Staying true to the book’s title, Lee gives four recipes for kimchi, including red cabbage–bacon and white pear, as well as bourbon-pickled jalapeños and pickled jasmine peaches. In the end, this is an irresistible collection for any adventurous home cook.
