Summer Eats/Drinks #3

I got a little misty eyed when I heard B. Smith was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

“Smith, 64, began her career as a model and was one of the first African Americans to grace the cover of Mademoiselle…She went on to become a pioneer in the lifestyle area, an expert in food and home entertaining. Around four years ago, Smith noticed that she was repeating herself and forgetting things.”

B. Smith is such a classy woman.


I have never understood why she wasn’t more popular with mainstream audiences. I mean if I know the names of racist Paula Deen and foul-mouthed Gordon Ramesy (he does crack me the %^&*! up),  folks should know more about B. Smith.

Smith hosts the show “B. Smith With Style” on the Food Network. She has also appeared on several TV shows.

  Check out her teaching  Al Roker how to make different styles of grits dishes. A summer must have 🙂
