Just Arrived! November 2013
“If you’ve got a rocker on the front porch, get into it, or settle into your favorite chair. In either case, fix yourself a tall glass of sweet tea as I welcome you to this special place for all occassions.” – Pat Branning
The porch is where we laze in a swing for a nap with overhead fans turning slowly, chat with friends who stop by to refresh and revitalize. It’s the part of the house that gives shade and shelter from rainstorms but above all, it’s a place to gather. The porch is the heart and soul of the South. Through the works of over 30 of the South’s finest artists, such as Charleston’s Betty Anglin Smith, Hilary Lambert, and Shannon Runquist, I take you on a powerful visual journey that defines our heritage as I excite your appetite with stunning visuals of recipes full of flavor and rich with local color and characters.
