Georgia food writer, author and Statesboro Herald columnist Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser will appear as a guest on The VeryVera Show this Sunday at 7 a.m. on WSAV in an episode titled, “The Coastal South.”
in its eighth season, The VeryVera Show is a Southern cooking program hosted by
caterer Vera Stewart and filmed in Augusta. It airs in 20 metropolitan markets
across the East and shows locally on WSAV on Sunday mornings at 7 a.m.
“We had so much fun filming the episode and cooking three delicious Southern, coastal recipes from my debut memoir,” Lingenfelser said. “I’m originally from Augusta, so it was exciting to return to WJBF Studios in my hometown to film with Mrs. Vera Stewart.”
Lingenfelser earned her Bachelor of Science degree in public relations from Georgia Southern University in 2005. She also attended the Culinary Institute of Savannah. A top 10 finalist on Season 14 of “Food Network Star” and Season 2 of ABC’s “The Taste,” she is the longtime Statesboro Herald food columnist and a regular contributor for Southern Soil and Discovering Bulloch magazines.
Her newly released memoir is titled “Some Kinda Good: Good Food and Good Company, That’s What It’s All About.” The 283-page book features 23 Southern, coastal recipes, 26 restaurant reviews and more than 100 color photographs. A compilation of short stories highlighting Lingenfelser’s national TV cooking competitions, her journey through culinary school, family traditions and hard-won life lessons, the book combines her Southern, coastal cooking style with a focus on Georgia grown, in-season ingredients. “Some Kinda Good” is available globally in hardback and eBook with major retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
