Lee Bailey was Very Cool

I have loads and loads of cookbooks. And they all offer great stuff. But one book inspires me more than any other. It is Lee Bailey’s Country Weekends. There is a certain charm in the presentations. From Saveur, perhaps this captures what I mean

It’s a heady mix of relaxed, Southern-style comfort (Bailey was a Louisiana native) and definitively 80’s glamour, with dated but charming good-life photos of sailboats, guest houses, and sunsets from private docks.

In Lee’s honor, tonight I will do his tomato soufflĂ©.
