Product Details


“The recipes in Son of a Southern Chef: Cook with Soul by Lazarus Lynch practically jump off the page. It’s a joyous jumble of soul-food. The Chopped champion’s personality is a big part of this book’s appeal, and the photos by Anisha Sisodia capture Laz’ energy and fashion sense.”
—WFAE (Charlotte’s NPR)

“Imagine if Prince wrote a cookbook while channeling the spirit of 7,000 West African, Caribbean, and Southern grandmothers with photography by David LaChapelle and art direction by Tyler the Creator.  Enter Lazarus Lynch.  Son of a Southern Chef is a magical cookbook filled with all the contradictions you’d expect from a culinary (and musical) virtuoso—it’s avant-garde yet grounded in tradition, hood yet haute, mischievous yet earnest in its intent to push the boundaries of how we imagine Black food.  This cookbook is dripping with all the swag and creativity that fans have loved since Lynch came on the scene in 2014, and he truly is the Rockstar Chef we’ve all been waiting for.”
—Bryant Terry, James Beard award-winning author of Afro-Vegan
Son of a Southern Chef is a visually stunning exploration of what soul food really is, which is food made with love and with loved ones. Lazarus’ personality shines through delicious recipes and dynamic pictures. This is definitely a book you will want to visit time and time again.”
—Marcus Samuelsson, award-winning chef, restaurateur, and co-owner of Red Rooster Harlem
