Description: Savannah Style cookbook from the Junior League shares a bit of the city's style in the form of 435 recipes from Savannah's best cooks along with enthralling glimpses into its social and culinary history.
It is certain you will find something tempting for every occasion inside this book. Picnickers might choose cold lemon chicken, Savannah red rice and marinated green salad topped off with creme de menthe brownies or cold strawberry souffle. Salmon mousse and asparagus might fill any luncheon bill, while baked Ogeechee shad, hot curried Georgia peaches and dove pilau are not to be missed. For New Year's Day, there's only one choice: Dugger's Hoppin' John.
Some of the recipes are for up-to-the minute dishes that might be served at a low-country supper next week. Others are traditional favorites from the days when, as New York socialite Ward McAllister put it, "a Savannah dinner party was an event to live for." Either way the emphasis is on simple but elegant food, well within the ability of the busy person who cares about graceful living and stylish entertaining, but who must accomplish it with less help than in days past.
Condition: Good condition interior. Dust jacket has some tears at the top edge and corners. There are one or two recipe notations in ink.
