" Matt and Ted Lee have been instrumental in making Charleston, South Carolina, one of the best restaurant cities in America. They 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. b> 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. b> Gabrielle HamiltonThis beautiful, charming, 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. b> Dorothea Benton FrankAn 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

Like the other book I looked at (Lee Bro.s Simple Fresh Southern), there is not a lot here to recommend it other than the pictures and the headnotes. Again the authors seem like nice people, and the website for the book is masterful marketing (which I am beginning to think is their specialty).

I like the idea that they took classic recipes and updated them to modern tastes, but when you don't know what the classic is, the update doesn't matter. Maybe that's my fault?

Again, nothing was compelling to try, and there was nothing to learn.
