Helena, Alabama, Chef Publishes New Cookbook
With "Simple and Elegant Recipes," Chef Buford has fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a chef and writing a cookbook. Once he decided to pursue writing, his daughter advised him to write a cookbook with the focus on teaching single women, who may not be so savvy in the kitchen, how to cook meals that would help them get a man. After a similar discussion with his stepdaughter, a newlywed, whose challenge was keeping her new husband happy with her minimal culinary skills, a concept was born—how to get a man and how to keep him.
With this cookbook, Chef Buford hopes to help remove the fear and anxiety about cooking experienced by many novice cooks. To quote the author, "I believe that enjoying a meal should not be the mere consuming of food, but a journey in the discovery of flavors, color, and taste." He has certainly achieved this goal with the recipes he has presentedůsimple and elegant.
