Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

South Carolina and Georgia's coastal cities have developed their own cuisine since their colonial infancy, a cooking style distinctive from the rest of the South. Access to the sea's finest, freshest shrimp, crab, and oysters opened culinary possibilities far beyond those in inland plantations. Taylor's newest book presents the best of this regional cookery set among photographs of the cities' stately homes. The result is a particularly elegant volume with practical recipes that cooks throughout the U.S. can appreciate. Some will prove difficult or expensive to reproduce--smoked lamb sausage required for Frogmore stew isn't readily available outside low-country sources. As if oysters Rockefeller somehow were too plain on their own, Taylor stuffs them into puff pastry to produce enticing finger foods. Other recipes--for cornbread, lemonade, and the like--present fewer difficulties. Mark Knoblauch

From the Inside Flap

John Martin Taylor offers a tempting display of homes and food with this sumptuous treasury of recipes and photographs. From shrimp Creole to black-eyed pea cakes, the unique flavors of southern cuisine are as old and treasured as the charming mansions of Charleston, Beaufort, and Savannah. 150 full-color photos.

If you want some excellent photography of several great homes in the South, you will enjoy this book. It will make an attractive addition to anyone's coffee table. If you want a good collection of recipes from the south, then look elsewhere. The quantity of recipes is limited; and the ones that are there are found, for the most part, in dozens of other cookbooks. Save your money.

For once, Southern cooking has been represented in its true form - sans grease, overcooking, and exotic ingredients. What is left is truly good food. Also present is historical information regarding the South and how this food fits into the past culture. A well researched, recipe tested, must have cookbook.

The recipes in this book are excellent, as is the photography. However, I could do without Mr. Taylor's somewhat elitist comments throughout the book, such as what "self-respecting" Charlestonians do and don't do. I learned to cook in Charleston, from many people who certainly consider themselves "self-respecting", and who were born and raised in Charleston (unlike Mr. Taylor), and they cook in many different ways, using many different recipes and ingredients to prepare the same dish! Also, the repeated plugging of products sold in his store downtown is somewhat self-serving. But like I said, the recipes are worth it, and I use them frequently.

This is a beautiful book about living in the fantasy world of upscale Charleston, SC. The recipes are fabulous and the pictures spectacular. These fellows must have had a ball working on this book. I have bought at least 25 copies for friends to enjoy. Jean Morris in Atlanta
