“A cookbook that is as much a stroll down the city’s historic streets as it is a peek into its pastry pantry.”
—Southern Lady magazine
“A book that is guaranteed to tingle your taste buds and add that special touch to every type of dinner and party.”
—Jewish Woman magazine
Rich in history and even richer in taste, the desserts in this addition to Pelican’s Classics Series are sure to tingle the taste buds and add that special touch to every type of dinner and party. From Cordavi Restaurant’s Roasted Plum Cobbler to the Square Onion Café’s Silver Moon Caramel Cake, this first-class cookbook also serves as a restaurant guide with photographs, history, and stories accompanying the award-winning recipes. Author Janice Shay includes priceless knowledge about the Charleston area and trivia about each of the restaurants featured in the book.
Some of the restaurants, such as Middleton Place, can be traced back to the 1700s. Since that time, the chefs and bakers of Charleston have been adapting and perfecting their desserts into the delicious treats Shay presents to readers today. From Lana Restaurant’s Sticky Fig Cake to the Six Tables’ timeless Blackberry Cobbler, there is a dessert for everyone in this tasty collection.
