Southern Culinary Instructor and Author Marilyn Markel Book Signing & Tasting at Fiction Addiction

Southern culinary instructor Marilyn Markel and Southern history author Chris Holaday have combined their talents for their new book, Southern Breads: Recipes, Stories and Traditions (The History Press, paperback, $24.99, on sale 12/5/16). Meet Marilyn at an in-store book signing on **Friday, December 23rd**, from Noon-2pm at Fiction Addiction, and taste samples of some of these historic Southern breads.

This event is free and open to the public. Books may be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.

The warmth of the oven and the smell of fresh-baked bread conjure comforting memories of tradition and place. Aside from being a staple on every table in the South, these breads and their recipes detail the storied history of the region. Biscuits emerged from Native American and European traditions. Cornbread, with its vast variety, is a point of debate among Southerners over which recipe yields the most delicious results. The hushpuppy, developed possibly to quiet whining dogs, is a requirement for any true catfish or barbecue meal. Author Chris Holaday and top culinary instructor Marilyn Markel offer the mouthwatering history, famous recipes, and heartwarming stories of Southerners in their kitchens.
