“This mouthwatering collection is stuffed with satisfying Southern dishes that will keep any seafood lover coming back.”
––Publishers Weekly, starred review
A top tourist destination with a knack for Southern hospitality, Savannah has a lot to offer when it comes to preparing fresh, irresistible seafood. Presenting a flavorful array of beautifully photographed crab, fish, oyster, shrimp, and scallop dishes, these selections provide a gustatory tour from the best and most-beloved Savannah restaurants and chefs.
The traditional Low Country favorites in this epicurean collection reflect the influence of the Irish, English, Spanish, French, and Gullah that make the area so particularly unique. Representing the finest the city has to offer, the entries range from Sundae Café’s Seafood Cheesecake and Cafe 37’s Oyster Stew to the Crab Shack’s Capt’n Crab’s Low Country Boil and Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House’s Crab-Stuffed Flounder.
As with Pelican’s other Classic Cookbook Series selections, this collection of recipes also serves as a local restaurant guide, boasting a memorable anecdote or history for each restaurant and dish. Each page invites the reader to enter one of Savannah’s restaurants and experience the historic city’s scrumptious culinary offerings. The Olde Pink House, established circa 1771; the Olympia Café on River Street; and the celebrated Wilkes House, among dozens of others, are just some of the establishments featured.
