Description: In the Carolina low country, it's all about the crab and rice. Along the Georgia coast, it's fish and shrimp. Crayfish in the Bayou of Louisiana. Cured ham in Kentucky and Virginia. Red-eye gravy in Tennessee. And it's fried chicken and okra anywhere below the Mason-Dixon line.
Southern food means different things to different people. But what epitomizes Southern food is the ability to take modest fare -- whatever you have on hand -- and turn it into a veritable feast. Served with pride and eaten with relish, Southern food is a national treasure.
From the women in antebellum attire to the rocking chairs on the front porch, the Blue Willow Inn Restaurant embodies Southern hospitality. Owners Louis and Billie Van Dyke, who named their restaurant for the charming china pattern its meals are presented on, are dedicated "to serving authentic Southern dishes, prepared in the same manner in which they have been prepared for generations -- with a few special touches belonging only to us."
In addition, the Blue Willow Inn Bible of Southern Cooking features a Kids' Korner (more than a dozen recipes especially for kids) and helpful guides on ingredient substitutions, planning food quantities for large groups, baking dishes and pan sizes, oven temperatures, and more.
