Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Herrick, who has lived in Charleston since 2000, is a Cordon Blue-trained chef, author and longtime food writer. Her work has appeared in Southern Living, Bon Appetit and Gourmet. Her new guide covers trendy and landmark restaurants, plus food festivals, like the popular Charleston Wine + Food Festival (poster below). It also includes spots in town and on the beaches that locals favor. For good measure, the tuck-in-tote-paperback features a few recipes, ranging from Spiced Georgia Nuts from Savannah's Green Truck Pup (which also cooks up grass-fed burgers) to the lemony Broccoli & Lentil Salad served at Charleston's Caviar & Bananas." – SouthernfindsIf you're planning a trip down here to the Charleston and Savannah areas, go ahead and pick up a copy of the Food Lover's Guide to Charleston and Savannah by Holly Herrick. Spend some time going through the restaurants and visiting their web sites, especially if your time in the area is limited. I find it helps to have a few restaurants picked out before I go to a new area. Even if you're not planning a trip down here, pick up a copy of the book anyway and join me in my fantasy culinary tour. I'll save you a spot! — Kim McCallie, A Well-Seasoned Life "What I really like about this guidebook is its singular focus – food. And why wouldn't we need a guidebook focused on food when one of the two cities in this book has been named the hottest in the South? The book, like traditional guidebooks, is organized according to area of town. Within each area, you may find the following topics: Foodie Faves, Landmarks, Specialty Stores, Markets, and Producers, and Learn to Cook. This makes this a great book for any type of gastro-enthusiast. If you are the type that only wants to eat out, you'll find a complete list of restaurants worth visiting. I like to shop at local stores when I visit another city, giving me what I consider a more inside perspective on local products and what locals are doing with them. So, for people like me, there's a section on specialty stores, markets and producers." - OKRA, the online magazine of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum..."the book's 247 pages (also) are brimming with (Herrick's) nuggets of wisdom about favorite places to eat and drink, shop for food and find other culinary treasures. The book includes recipes from top local chefs and is a resource for food events and cooking classes, too". - Teresa Taylor, The Post and Courier.
