"The Lowcountry is a place where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter, front porches are wide and words are long. Everyone is darlin' and someone's heart is always bein' blessed." Pull up a front porch rocker, pour yourself a tall glass of sweet tea and get ready to enter the authentic South. Pat will have you falling head over heels in love with the Lowcountry she knows and loves.
Recipes and stories throughout the book reflect the traditions of community and foodways that have survived and evolved for decades. Many come from her early days in Beaufort where she and her friends often entertained and hosted parties, oyster roasts, and covered dish suppers.
Welcome to the new land of shrimp, collards and grits, updated and full of brand new recipes and stories! Pat has remastered the book that started it all “SCG Volume 1” to celebrate her journey as an author.
Exquisite, reverent narratives as powerful and timeless as the ancient live oaks that line and shelter our towns and villages honor the human spirit in the lives of local shrimpers, oystermen, and crabbers as they go about their daily lives.
