Matt and Ted Lee, authors of the Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook, the 2007 James Beard Cookbook of the Year, are out with a new cookbook, The Lee Bros.: Charleston Kitchen. According to the author's website they “interviewed home cooks, chefs, farmers, fishermen, caterers, and funeral directors to get the most accurate—and at the same time very intimate—perspective on Charleston foodways” and describe this as their most personal book yet. In addition, the cookbook includes walking tours and driving maps that correspond to recipes. So, if you enjoy good food and Charleston, SC you should have a grand time with this cookbook. A link to the author's website is linked below, according to the Tour Schedule they do plan to be in Columbia in March for book signings at two area bookstores.
