You know Zac Brown as the lead singer/guitar player of the Zac Brown Band, but do you know Chef Zac Brown? The former chef and restaurant owner has a passion for good food, so much that he built a “kitchen on wheels” and published a cookbook, Southern Ground.
The infamous mobile kitchen is a 53-foot tractor trailer that provides meals for the ZBB crew and for the band’s “Eat and Greet” events, in which the crew feeds 200 fans before each concert. This is not your standard food trailer fare; fans are treated to a gourmet Southern spread while enjoying the chance to mingle with the band.
Southern Ground includes recipes from the road and some of Zac’s favorite dishes, including Jalapeno Squash Casserole, Southern Fried Chicken, Farmer’s Fried Green Tomatoes and Revival Peach Cobbler. The cookbook features removable index cards—handy for a quick run to the grocery store for supplies—and dozens of poems, songs, stories (reportedly “both fact and lore”), and photos and other images of art, nature, travel and life.
Slashfood.com is offering fans the chance to win in an autographed copy of the Southern Ground cookbook; entries are due by 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. You may also purchase the book here.
