Ruby Dee, of Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers, has written a high octane roots-oriented cookbook with 120 original Americana recipes accompanied by tidbits of information and stories about each dish, and a CD of great Americana music to cook by. While all the recipes are Ruby’s own, a plethora of talented Texas musicians added spice to the flavorful CD that accompanies the book.
Grammy-nominated Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers will perform from 10pm-12am at Ruby’s home away from home, The Continental Club, and The Modern Don Juans will close the night out while Ruby signs copies of her book. Ruby’s Juke Joint Americana Cookbook will be available in stores January 10th at all the usual places: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, for ipad, independent and major book stores, music stores, and specialty groceries such as Central Market and Whole Foods.
Ruby will also be joined by The Snakehandlers at Book People on Wednesday January 11th 7pm-8:30pm for a bit of music and discussion about Americana cuisine and culture, Q&A, and book signing.
