Reviews

"Matt and Ted Lee are both charming, ebullient men as elegant as the city they were born to praise. The Lee Bros Charleston Kitchen is a work of art; it brings the city of Charleston to every home lucky enough to own this book."
--Pat Conroy

"If I suddenly sell everything and move to Charleston it's the Lee Bros' fault. I was so totally charmed by this book; it makes me want to bring my hammer to the oyster roast, sip bourbon in the afternoon, and carouse with the guinea fowl of Lamboll Street."
--Gabrielle Hamilton

"This beautiful, witty, nostalgic edition is filled with delicious memories. I remember the cheese dip at Henry's, the pickle barrel at Harold's Cabin--every page holds some piece of our lives. Buy this book even if you don't cook. It's just that wonderful."
--Dorothea Benton Frank

"An education in manners and mores. A testament to great cooks of generations past. A census of modern foodways. The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen is all those things. More important, Matt and Ted's new book is a back gate passkey to life on America's most storied peninsula, where mulberry trees sag with fruit, waters course with roe-engorged shad, and cook pots bob with greens and neck bones."
--John T Edge

"Charleston may be America's most charming city, and in this delicious book the Lee brothers have captured its soul. This is the South seen through a different lens, a place filled with fresh fish, heirloom vegetables, and recipes handed from one generation to the next. Reading through these recipes, I found myself wanting to run into the kitchen and cook every one."
--Ruth Reichl

"In amongst the classic recipes--many of them ingeniously updated--the Lee brothers serve up plenty of Lowcountry culinary lore. And, with a gentlemanly bow to the locals who make it happen, they fold in profiles of such colorful characters as the master filleter of shad, the tractor-riding truck farmer of Johns Island, the Queen of the Shrimpers, and Martha Lou of 'NoMo.' The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen is easily as entertaining as it is informative."
--John Berendt
