Big Flavor. Big Personality. Unforgettable Southern Cuisine
On screen and in the kitchen, Jason Santos is known for two things: his smack-you-in-the-mouthflavored dishes and his larger-than-life personality. Buttermilk & Bourbon, the name of Jason’s wildly popular restaurant and his standout cookbook, showcases incredible recipes inspired by the exciting flavors and culture of New Orleans.
Jason has gathered his best Southern-inspired recipes—the ones that restaurant-goers write about impassioned letters and the ones even his line cooks can’t resist—and laid them bare for you.
Make his signature dishes at home like Literally the Best Fried Chicken Wings in the History of Chicken and Flamin‘ Hot Cheeto Mac & Cheese. Binge on Smoked Gouda Cornbread or go all in on New Orleans BBQ Shrimp with Jalapeño Grits. Finish with a signature cocktail like Voodoo on the Bayou and desserts like Fresh Fried Beignets.
What you hold in your hands is a collection of epic recipes and electric commentary like no other.
