Savannah Food A Delicious History
Savannah Food: A Delicious History
Savannah’s remarkable cuisine is a reflection of its unique history and no one tells this story better than brothers Stu and Donald Card. In their new book, Savannah Food: A Delicious History, the Card brothers recount the fascinating history of Savannah through the lens of food. As you might imagine, this history begins in the colonial era, when residents gathered in local taverns to plan a rebellion against their British rulers, but that is just the beginning. The story of Savannah’s eclectic cuisine grew from these colonial roots to include tales of debtors freed from prison to help seek new cash crops for England, the rich histories of religious refugees that came to Savannah from Austria and Germany, and accounts of Scottish Highlanders who came to protect the English colonists from the Spaniards settling in Florida. The authors’ understanding of both the region’s history and its food allows them to paint a clear picture for the reader of how the mixture of European influences, traditional Gullah techniques, excellent local ingredients, and world-class seafood combine together to create many of Savannah’s favorite dishes. Come join the authors, award-winning Savannah Taste Experience Food Tour operators Stu and Donald Card, on this mouth-watering journey to find the roots of Savannah’s famed dishes.
