Hoppin' John's Lowcountry Cooking

John Martin Taylor’s Hoppin' John's Lowcountry Cooking, has been considered the best regional cookbook of its time. Now, the University of North Carolina Press is bringing out a new edition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this classic cookbook.

In Hoppin' John's Lowcountry Cooking, John Martin Taylor offers a new preface in addition to 250 authentic and updated recipes for regional favorites, including shrimp and grits, she-crab soup, pickled watermelon rinds, and Frogmore stew.

John Martin Taylor is owner of www.HoppinJohns.com, where he sells special ingredients, including stone-milled cornmeal, to many of the country's best restaurants, and is the author of four cookbooks (see below).
