Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Sheree Kelley for her cookbook Breads & Spreads.
Growing up in Pulaski, Tennessee, family, food and cooking played a key role in Sheree Kelley’s daily life. While other neighborhood children played outside, Sheree spent hours in the kitchen watching her grandmother whip up one delicious creation after another. After mastering her mother’s cornbread at the age of 8, Sheree’s baking and cooking skills began to grow- along with her collection of family recipes. Even then she knew that a family cookbook was in her future.
Sheree never abandoned her dream of creating a cookbook with all the family recipes she’d collected, some dating back to her great-grandparents. But she had so much material that she and her publisher decided only a series of cookbooks would do, complete with family stories to go with each recipe. When her grandmother passed away, Sheree decided it was time to embark on her first cookbook, one focused on biscuits and breads.
