Chef Lara Lyn Carter In Thomasville Saturday

The Bookshelf Hosts Cookbook Author, TV Celebrity Chef

Chef Lara Lyn Carter
THOMASVILLE, CEORGIA--She’s a familiar, friendly face for fans who enjoy her highly popular show on WALB-TV. Chef Lara Lyn Carter has become the pride and joy of Southern cooks, an unofficial but very real association of kitchen wizards taking the cuisine of the Deep South to a growing national audience yearning for originality. And as viewers of her show will attest, the ebullient and talented chef makes everything herself from available local farm products, honoring the influences of family and friends.

The best news for Chef Carter’s fans is that her new and truly beautiful cookbook is in major bookstores everywhere. Southern Thymes Shared (Pelican Publishing 2104), a hardcover masterpiece is critically praised as a book worthy of a coffee table.  According to a recent review in Southwind Journeys Magazine by North Carolina journalist Lynne Brandon, the book “really should be considered as a wedding or Mother’s Day gift.”

For all those lucky enough to live in or near Thomasville, Chef Lara Lyn Carter makes a special appearance at The Bookshelf in the historic city this Saturday, March 15 beginning at noon. She will talk about her cooking heritage (“vintage South Georgia”), her rise to television stardom and how Southern Thymes Shared became a popular cookbook. Chances are very good, according to sources, that she will have some treats for the audience and sign her cookbook.

A Saturday afternoon at a renowned bookstore in one of America’s must beautiful cities is a great way to welcome in the spring just around the corner. Add in all the possibilities that come from a conversation with Chef Lara Lyn Carter and that urge to go home and prepare a meal with some new twists and turns might just appear.

And there is more than a little wine

Chef Lara Lyn Carter’s appearance in Thomasville is part of a tour to introduce Southern Thymes Shared to audiences. She has recently appeared in Albany, Valdosta and Cordele and will appear next week at the Historic Windsor Hotel in Americus, Georgia. Other appearances are scheduled throughout the Southeast.

*Full disclosure. Doc Lawrence contributed the wine pairings in Southern Thymes Shared.
