I love when I meet someone and I feel that I’m a better person from just having been around them. Virginia Willis is one of those people. Willis is one of the most genuinely nice, warm, and charming individuals I’ve had the pleasure to meet and photograph. She’s a gem of a person as well as an amazing teacher in the kitchen. Her second cook book, Basic to Brilliant, Yall, will be available September 27th and features basic southern recipes that can be gussied up and made brilliant of course. On a recent  photo shoot for an AJC feature on Willis and her new book she cooked Sweet Tea-Brined Pork Blade Steaks With “Brilliant” Grilled Onions and Sherry Vinegar, Sautéed Brussels Sprouts With Apples and Bacon, and Anne’s Cornmeal Cake With “Brilliant” Candied Lemon Zest.

I hope you enjoy the images. I’m very much looking forward to cooking from Basic to Brilliant and can’t wait to see Virginia again.

One last thanks to The Cooks Warehouse for allowing us to cook and shoot at their Ansley Mall location!
