This Is the Best Dish To Bring to a Funeral

  This Is the Best Dish To Bring to a Funeral In the South, food is always the answer. No matter the occasion—baby shower, bridal luncheon, birthday party, backyard cookout—the immediate question that follows an invitation is, “What can I bring?” Food is an expression of emotion: love, appreciation, celebration, sympathy. When a Southerner dies, mourners immediately assume their positions in the kitchen, preparing offerings of heartfelt condolence for the deceased’s family the best way they know how: cooking up comforting casseroles, funeral potatoes, and baked hams. When we’re a loss for words, feeding people is our traditional response. So what’s the best dish to bring to a funeral? Offer a platter of classic Southern comfort: fried chicken. The ultimate finger food, fried chicken soothes any Southerner’s soul. You might have trouble finding an empty spot on the dining table when you arrive for the visitation, but room will always be made for this cure-all food. It can be eaten hot during the gathering or snacked on cold the next day (which, arguably, tastes even better). Mississippi etiquette experts Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays tout fried chicken as one of the top 10 foods to bring to a funeral, and cookbook author Perre Coleman Magness lists fried chicken as the number one in her Southern Sympathy Cookbook. WATCH: Funeral Etiquette Every Southerner Should Know There’s special something about a seemingly ordinary piece of fried chicken. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a fond memory attached to the food, be it a favorite recipe or a loved one who made it; it’s a culinary tie that binds. Fry a homemade batch or pick up a container from your favorite takeout spot—it doesn’t matter. You’ll offer comfort to those who are grieving with a smile and a crispy, golden-brown drumstick.

You'd think Tiffani Thiessen, teen TV queen-turned-Food Network star, would have a perma-entourage in tow. But when she came to the Delish office recently, it was just her - no publicist, no makeup person, no hype crew. And when we sat down to chat about her new cookbook and her all-time favorite meals (we squeezed in some Saved By The Bell gossip, too), she didn't act the part of celebrity. That's kind of Thiessen's shtick, even if she created it on accident - to bring you into her fold, like you've been friends for years. And it's her intention to make you feel the same way with Pull Up A Chair, which launches October 2. (You can preorder the book now!) Here's the inside scoop.

The best method for cooking asparagus is 2,000 years old

  The best method for cooking asparagus is 2,000 years old I used to think I didn’t like asparagus, but it turned out to be—as these aversions often are—a textural problem. Their stalks would remain fibrous and tough even as half the stalk and the tips turned to mush. My mind was changed a few years ago when some restaurant dish I ordered came with a salad of pleasantly al dente asparagus, the tips tender but not mushy. At home, I tried blanching the stalks, grilling them, baking them, but nothing recreated that texture—until I learned of a combination boiling-steaming method involving a mason jar and very little kitchen skill.

Food is her favorite way of connecting.

"I like how food brings people together," Thiessen says. "Some people will say that about music or art, but food does it for me." It's been a common thread in all of her projects: Every episode of Thiessen's Food Network show, Dinner At Tiffani's, featured a different crew - some family, some famous friends - gathered together to share a meal. And the intention of the her cookbook, with its title Pull Up A Chair, is the same - though, you'll have to invite your own friends and just imagine Thiessen there.

The cookbook is like a yearbook.

Thiessen's been working on it for more than a year, so the photos that were snapped already serve as memories. "I look at it, and my kids are already so different now," she laughs. All of the cooking and picture-taking was done at Thiessen's home, too, which made the entire process extra sentimental.

Tiffani's favorite recipe is a riff on her mom's.

"My mom used to make beef stroganoff all the time, and I used to despise it and call it dog food," she recalls. As Thiessen grew more comfortable in the kitchen, she promised her mom she was going to take the stroganoff and make it better. And that's exactly what she did: The version in Pull Up A Chair is "heightened", she says. It's served on polenta, instead of the usual egg noodles, and - most importantly - it earned a thumbs up from her mom and her kids.

She's got a built-in taste-tester.

If Thiessen's husband, actor Brady Smith, didn't like a meal, it didn't go in the cookbook - not that that happened much. "He really eats anything, so if I know that he doesn’t like, it it has to be pretty bad ... and I just don’t make bad food," she laughs. Smith's not a cook, but he's an eater, Thiessen likes to joke, so he tested every recipe she created. "He's a great dish washer, too," she says. "It's the greatest combination, hence why we've been married for 13 years."

Tiffani is not a picky eater.

We grilled her on dozens of controversial things - black licorice, Brussels sprouts, oysters. Tiffani's answer to nearly all of them: Delish. But we did manage to stump her on Zack Morris. (We know, we know - he's not food! But we couldn't resist.) "My 14-year-old self? Delish," she says. "My 44-year-old self ... not so much!"
