The cuisine of Charleston has been applauded for more than two centuries. Here, we present menus for a year of entertaining, with recipes ranging from simple Hoppin' John to elegant Princess Torte. Photographs of Charleston's architecture and historical sketches make this more than a mere cookbook.

About the Photographer
N. Jane Iseley
Photographer for 36 photography books, including Lowcountry Plantations Today, Iseley is also an accomplished farmer. Her Burlington, NC, farm has been in the family since 1790, and in 2013 she was the first woman to receive the North Carolina Soil and Water Conservation Farm Family of the Year award. From Iseley’s experience placing agricultural and conservation easements on her farm came the interest in exploring the effect of easements in preserving Charleston and its surrounds, the place she’s worked decades documenting.
