In 1943, a young and determined Sema Wilkes took over a nondescript turn-of-the-century boardinghouse with a modest goal: to make a living by offering comfortable lodging and southern home cooking served family style in the downstairs dining room. Her reputation was strong and business brisk from the beginning, but it was the coverage in Esquire and the New York times, and a profile on David Brinkley's evening news that brought southern food lovers from all over the world to her doorstep.
The line now snakes out the front door and onto the street, where along with the locals and visitors, it is not uncommon to find Jimmy Carter or Roy Blount, Jr., among other familiar faces, waiting for their turn at Mrs. Wilkes' table.
With over 300 recipes and culinary historian John T. Edge's colorful telling of Mrs. Wilke's contribution to Savannah and southern cuisine, this rich volume is a tribute to a way of cooking--and eating--that must not be forgotten.

When you're making pie dough the key is to work quickly and keep the butter as cold as possible. This will ensure your dough retains pockets of fat as it bakes, which in turn creates the buttery, flaky crust we all love. That's why it's best to make a pie on a cold day, or in a well air-conditioned room.
