If you haven't picked up a copy yet (ahem), you can still enjoy some of the food out of the book by simply heading out to Tin Angel tonight through Thursday, where they'll be offering a very affordable menu of dishes as part of their prix fixe menu. For just $23, you'll get to enjoy a soup, main course and dessert from restaurants in Louisiana, Florida and West Virginia without having to leave your hometown. Here are the details:

I've made all three of these dishes at home and imagine they'll be even tastier coming out of the kitchen at Tin Angel. I'll even be there tonight to sell and/or sign a copy for you if you want to ask for me. I can't wait to try Tin Angel's take on these recipes.
If you can't make it to West End, I'll also be signing copies of the book at the Barnes & Noble in Cool Springs this Friday, Oct. 26, from 4 to 6 p.m., but since they don't have a deep fryer in the bookstore, you'll have to make your own dinner plans.
