THE SALTWATER TABLE - RECIPES FROM THE COASTAL SOUTH
By Whitney Otawka
This culinary travel fantasy, celebrating the food of the Southeastern coast, is by Whitney Otawka, the award-winning chef of Greyfield, a celebrated Carnegie-built inn located on Cumberland Island, Georgia—a magical and remote barrier island that has been left undeveloped as a National Seashore.
Cumberland Island and the exceptional local ingredients to be found there are Otawka’s muse, inspiring her to celebrate the beloved food found along the Southeast coast. Offering a modern perspective on southern flavors with a strong emphasis on vegetables and fresh ingredients, the book contains 125 approachable and flavorful recipes, such as:
Summer Tomatoes Topped with Crispy Okra
Flakey Buttermilk Biscuits with Ginger-Spiked Jam
Sweet Atlantic Shrimp Poached with Beer, Citrus, and Bay Leaves
Shrimp Escabeche with Sungold Tomatoes
Spaghetti Squash with Pecorino Romano Cream and Walnuts
Banana Leaf-Wrapped Snapper
And much more!
This beautifully photographed book also shows us how to enjoy iconic southern meals, everything from an oyster roast to a fish fry to a Low Country boil.
