Magnolias Classic Southern Cuisine: Collected Recipes from the Heart of Charleston represents the 30+ years since Magnolias opened. There are 9 chapters featuring over 100 recipes, from Pantry items to Meat and Poultry, Sides to Sweets, along with bits of history and anecdotes from our storied restaurant. Recipes include many staple menu items and seasonal favorites, such as Fried Green Tomatoes and Summer Tomato & Vidalia Onion Salad. There are even recipes from the earliest years of the restaurant such as Sweet Biscuit and Chicken & Sage Hash. These recipes have withstood the test of time and are frequently requested by guests. Full color images bring these beloved recipes and cooking techniques to life.
Restaurant cooking tips and encouraging advice counter the time and labor-intensiveness of the recipes. They all seem eminently doable with Drake’s clear and detailed instructions… It is a great cookbook to linger over and plan for holiday, or to luxuriate over in the kitchen.
Magnolias Classic Southern Cuisine is a Southern cookbook to both savor and spatter.
