Many people attended the book signing for a nationally known Southern cooking expert Saturday at Gingers in Corinth.

Elizabeth Heiskell signed copies of her book “What Can I Bring? Southern Food for Any Occasion Life Serves Up.”

Heiskell, who is also a regular food contributor on NBC’s TODAY show, enjoyed conversation with Corinth residents.

She signed a stack of books by a large gingerbread house on display at Gingers. Bottles of Heiskell’s Debutante Farmer Bloody Mary Mix were also on sale.

Heiskell said she was very impressed by the large selection of quality merchandise at Gingers.

“It’s absolutely fantastic,” Heiskell said, adding that Gingers has “something for everyone.”

Ginger Stockton, owner of Gingers, said she and the staff were “beyond excited” for Heiskell to visit the store and sign copies of her book.

“I think her book is wonderful,” Stockton said.

The recipes are user friendly and incorporate ingredients normally found in the pantry, Stockton added. She described it as “good ole delicious Southern cooking.”

It turns out Heiskell has a lot of Corinth connections, said Stockton.

Heiskell, also known as the Debutante Farmer, grew up in the Mississippi Delta, but now lives in Oxford, where she runs Woodson Ridge Farm with her husband, Luke, and their three girls.
