Low Country cookbook suggestions
- Boudleaux Nov 22, 2008 02:43 PM
I am in search of a Low Country cookbook to give as a Christmas present. The recipient already has Hoppin' John's book but wants another book. I am eyeing "New Low-Country Cooking" by Marvin Woods. Any opinions and advice would be appreciated.
Woods's book is available from Edward R. Hamilton for $8.95. I got one a few months ago, but before I had a chance to cook from it I had to move, and it's still packed in a box somewhere. I do remember taking a look through it and finding it not very impressive. I will enthusiastically recommend "Charleston Receipts," if your intended recipient doesn't also have that already. By the way, I grew up in the South Carolina Low Country.
I just got a copy of "New Low-Country Cooking" by Marvin Woods at a used bookstore...have not cooked from it yet. But
if you want to chat about it, I'm interested...
I like the look of the green rice.
