Coastal Carolina Cooking
Here thirty-four Tar Heel cooks offer recipes that can't be found in popular cookbooks or on restaurant menus. In Edenton, Frances Drane Inglis shares her recipe for plum pudding from the pages of a nineteenth-century family cookbook. And from Gloucester, Bill Pigott offers one of his specialties, conch chowder, a Carteret County classic.
But these cooks describe more than just good food; they recount the heritage of the coast through stories, anecdotes, helpful tips, and historical facts. Vignettes on each cook lend a historical perspective to this book and the old-time recipes will be treasured for years to come.
