foodies guide to lowcountry

April 23, 2012

For architecture, history and a taste of the New South, head for Charleston and Savannah.

To find the best places to eat and nosh, pick up a copy of  the “Food Lovers’ Guide to Charleston and Savannah”  by Holly Herrick.

Herrick, who has lived in Charleston since 2000, is a Cordon Blue-trained chef, author and longtime food writer.  Her work has appeared in Southern Living, Bon Appetit and Gourmet.

Her new guide ($14.95) covers trendy and landmark restaurants, plus food festivals, like the popular Charleston Wine + Food Festival (poster below). It also includes spots in town and on the beaches that locals favor.

For good measure, the tuck-in-tote-paperback features a few recipes, ranging from Spiced Georgia Nuts from Savannah’s Green Truck Pup (which also cooks up grass-fed burgers) to the lemony  Broccoli & Lentil Salad served at Charleston’s Caviar & Bananas.

In the guide to these two great eating towns,  find Sean Brock’s award-winning restaurants (Husk and McGrady’s in Charleston) among the tasty listings along with Savannah landmarks, like Elizabeth on 37th.

You will discover there is a world of Southern food beyond fried chicken and BBQ.

  1. Oh me me!!!! That looks wonderful. I have a great love for the Low Country and have always had a super range of culinary experiences there, especially once you get seafood involved. Thanks for the review.
