The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen {Giveaway}

by Cassidy Stockton in Contests, Featured Articles

While I’ve never been to Charleston, I have a feeling the new book from Matt and Ted Lee provides a very good taste of what South Carolina has to offer. Matt and Ted got in touch with us because they rely on our cornmeal for their recipes. It’s hard to please a Southerner with a cornmeal, so we were honored to hear that ours passed muster in their homes.

Each recipe in this book is accompanied by an introduction with tips on how to serve the dish and the fond memories the recipe sparks for the brothers. Some recipes were collected from favorite restaurants, while others are uniquely their own. The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen is filled with quintessential Southern dishes that anyone can recognize like Shrimp and Grits and Smothered Pork Chops, and more unique dishes like Shark Sandwich (where do you buy shark anyway?) and Tomato and Watermelon Gazpacho. The Lee brothers provide a lesson in how to boil peanuts to perfection and tips for buying crab, as well as how to make a mean Moonshine Martini.

This book is not for the vegetarian or vegan, however, unless you wish to subsist on the perfect Gin and Tonic and Pan Roasted Okra, Corn and Tomatoes (though that does sound like a great meal). There are a handful of vegetarian recipes here, but the book is centered around amazing preparations of seafood with a smattering of chicken, beef and pork dishes. Of course, the book runs the full gamut from drink to dessert, so you can plan a Charleston meal in true style.

Containing over 100 recipes, most accompanied by full-color photos, The Lee Bros. is truly a trip to the South. If you should make it to Charleston, you’ll find a lovely Walking and Driving Tour with the best bites and sites from the book. We’ll have a recipe to share next week for Pineapple Cornbread Pudding.

So you love the the idea of this book, but don’t want to put in the effort? Ted and Matt also have an online shop where you can order boiled peanuts, pickles, preserves, baked goods and more! Did I mention the brothers got their start selling boiled peanuts online? Check out the store- it’s quite fun. Moonpies, anyone?

  1. Sounds interesting! I love southern cooking & I love Bob’s Red Mill products. I have more than one favorite southern dish, but my most favorite is collard greens. Yum!

  2. My favorite Southern meal is fried chicken, cornbread, sweet potato casserole, corn-on-the-cob and pecan pie with a giant glass of tea!

  3. I have one pf their other cookbooks and I would love to add this one to the collection! They have really great recipes.

  4. We live 2.5 hours from Charleston SC, and LOVE the low-country delights… crab cakes and cheesy grits; bay-seasoned shrimp boiled with corn-on-the-cob, spicy sausage, and tiny red potatoes served on a picnic table covered in newspaper. YUMMMMMM

  5. App doesnt appear to be working. I’m not getting credit for connecting and it’s hung up on the leave a comment part. bummer

  6. I love cornbread straight from the skillet!! The best meal has to be turnip greens, black-eyed peas, and cornbread!! Yum!

  7. Jym,

    Did you select “I did this” on the app after you commented? It seems to be working fine on my end. If that does not work, just leave me a comment with all the things you did and I’ll work it out.

  8. Favorite southern dish…grits and greens; I have just discovered Steen’s Cane Syrup (from Treme) and am using that over pancakes.

  9. Every once in a while I get a hankering for my dad’s black eyed peas, rice, greens (usually turnip) and his cornbread. I don’t use pork, but I think I come pretty close to his recipe.

  10. I have always wanted to learn how to cook the southern dishes. They seem so simple when you eat them but they certainly take a special touch! Would love to try some new recipes! 🙂

  11. My daughter and son-in-law used one of their cookbooks for her guest book at their wedding…people loved reading all the recipes and the cookbook is permanent and special keepsake.
