Modern Hospitality has a lovely feminine, vintage feel and lots of beautiful photos. The recipes are Southern and, for the most part, simple. All of the recipes are true to Southern ingredients and flavor profiles but making them slightly healthier and more modern. She also takes some non-Southern dishes and uses ingredients indigenous to this region of the country to put her own spin on them such as Turnip Green Pesto.
- 11 turnip greens, ribs removed
- 2 1/2 cup tablespoons walnuts, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- salt and ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the turnip greens two at a time in he boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove the leaves and drain on the paper town and pat dry. Stack the leaves on top of one another. Roll into a cigar and cut crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips
