Rich in history and even richer in taste, the desserts in this Pelican Classic cookbook are sure to tingle the taste buds and add that special touch to every type of dinner and party. From Cordavi Restaurant’s Roasted Plum Cobbler to the Square Onion Café’s Silver Moon Caramel Cake, this first-class cookbook also serves as a restaurant guide with photographs, history, and stories accompanying the award-winning recipes. Author Janice Shay includes priceless knowledge about the Charleston area and trivia about each of the restaurants featured in the book.
Some of the restaurants, such as Middleton Place, can be dated back to the 1700s. Since that time, the chefs and bakers of Charleston have been adapting and perfecting their desserts into the delicious treats Shay presents to readers today. From Lana Restaurant’s sticky fig cake to the Six Tables’ timeless blackberry cobbler, there is a dessert for everyone in Charleston Classic Desserts.
