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.
