This Saturday, October 29th, from 1 to 4 pm, Christmas Place hosts author and chef Ginny McCormack for a signing of her book, Sunday in the South.
More than just a cookbook, although it is filled with delectable recipes, Ginny’s book includes 350 photographs of food, gorgeous table decor, and beautiful Southern imagery. Complete dinner menus; quotes, stories, and humorous anecdotes; and tips and techniques fill each chapter, making this much more than a simple cookbook – it’s a story about incorporating food into the best times of our lives with Southern grace, hospitality, and congeniality.
Chapter topics and recipes cover a range from “A Formal Sunday Feast” to “A Comfort Food Family Dinner,” “A Seafood Lunch on the Porch,” “A Hearty Outdoor Dinner,” and “Ten Southern Classics,” and include breakfast and other meals. I’m going to check out her recipe for Southern Key Lime Pie – it’s my personal favorite, and I’ve been gathering ideas for making the best! In the mean time, can I interest anyone in Southern Home Style Meatloaf with Sweet Chili Glaze, Creamy Corn Pudding, and White Cheddar Cornbread, finished with Peach Bread Pudding? (I would just choose today to write about this, when I left my lunch sitting on the kitchen counter at home!!)
Ginny is a cooking instructor, speaker, author, food columnist, editor of an online magazine, and host of GinnyMcCormackCooks.com. She has appeared regularly as a T.V. chef. She lives with her family in Marietta, Georgia, and enjoys writing and teaching about the art of Southern hospitality and new Southern cuisine.
This is Ginny’s first visit to Christmas Place, and we are looking forward to meeting her. Her book would make a fabulous Christmas or special occasion gift!
Also at 1 o’clock on Saturday, our Floral Department will be demonstrating how to assemble and decorate the mesh boxes that are such a favorite for holiday decor – and especially since they can be themed for any occasion, not just Christmas.
We’ll see you Saturday!

P.S. Two more signings on Saturday – you can take care of all your Christmas at one time! – Ne’Qwa Inside Art Ornaments, painted on the inside of glass ornaments – Trieste will be here once again demonstrating her amazing painting technique – sometimes she brings brushes you can buy to try it yourself. I have painted on glass – it’s a very mental challenge, because you have to think about the image in reverse order from traditional surface painting. (This iconic snowman & cardinal image is my personal choice – I got mine signed when it was first released in 2008.)
R. J. McDonald is back with us for the weekend to sign his wonderful Santa prints and giclees – some of which can be personalized by adding your family names to Santa’s “nice” list!
Come see us!
