Overview

Classic Savannah desserts have been modified and modernized in this gift cookbook and enhanced by appetiteinducing color photography. The city's original settlers preferred to start their desserts with custard, and today there is no shortage of requests for cr�me br�l�e, cr�me caramel, and the most popular, the Savannah trifle. This cookbook showcases the sweets, restaurants, and fresh, local ingredients that make Savannah scrumptious. Whether it's Soho South Caf�'s Berry Shortcake or The Lady and Sons' Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes, there is something for everyone to indulge in. History, musings, and stories accompany the many award-winning recipes, making this first-class cookbook a restaurant guide as well.
