Your lunchtime read today comes from NPR, which interviewed chef and memoirist Eddie Hernandez over the weekend.

Hernandez calls himself a “born-again Southern Mexican,” since he hails from Monterrey but became a U.S. citizen while living in Georgia.

That’s also his cooking style nowadays: He puts a Mexican twist on soul-food classics at a James Beard-nominated restaurant chain.

And, not to belabor the point, but his new book Turnip Greens & Tortillas is a fusion as well, mixing memoir with culinary commentary.

Listen to his appearance on Weekend Edition below or read a transcript here.
