Martha Nesbit has been cooking and writing about food in Savannah, Georgia, for more than three decades. She is familiar with the city's fanciest soirées-balls, weddings, and coming-out parties-and she's also been privy to intimate at-home celebrations where simple, delicious food is served in the splendor that only a Savannah setting can provide.
This book is a collection of 16 of those special Savannah-style dining fetes, with more than 150 tried and-true Low Country recipes that have been perfected through years of trial and error. Only the best dishes are included here, from the christening party's Tomato Pie to the birthday dinner's Coconut Pound Cake and the Gullah meal's Spicy Deviled Crab and Okra and Tomatoes. Nesbit focuses on ingredients that are easy to find and easy on the pocketbook. She pulls together the entire menu so that you don't have to worry about how the dishes will taste or look side by side. Every menu is a winner!
Featured alongside photographs of picturesque Savannah homes and scenes, these parties, menus, and recipes will inspire every reader to plan a simple celebration at home.
