Winston-Salem – Chef Timothy Grandinetti of Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar announced the official release of his first cookbook, Soulful Harvest: Signature Recipes, Timeless Techniques & Culinary Reflections was Thursday, October 19, 2017. The 238-page cookbook features 190 of Chef Grandnetti’s favorite recipes and is a culinary journey inspired by a lifetime of creative cooking in cadence with the seasons using ingredients harvested from area farmers and producers.
“Soulful Harvest is part cookbook, part culinary memoir,” said Chef Grandinetti, who began culling recipes from his repertoire almost 10 years ago. “After cooking for our guests at Spring House for over five years, and immersing our culinary culture into that historic place, the time felt right to finally put my many inspirations into a cookbook to share with others.”
“My hope is that my story and the dishes we include in Soulful Harvest will ignite and encourage home cooks as well as up-and-coming chefs searching to expand their culinary knowledge,” said Chef Grandinetti who recently launched a series of Soulful Harvest cooking classes and dinners based on the cookbook. “One of my favorite things about this cookbook is how much it mirrors Spring House, inviting people to gather and break bread together.”
Soulful Harvest is now available for order at www.SpringHouseNC.com. Beginning Friday, October 20th, signed copies of the cookbook are available for purchase at Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar; Quanto Basta Italian Eatery & Wine Bar; and Southern Home and Kitchen. Registration for seasonal cooking classes based on Soulful Harvest is available at www.shopsohonc.com
