Shrimp Collards & Grits – delicious southern recipes
“Shrimp, Collards & Grits is a unique combination of several elements that together heighten the reader’s experience of the book and the South – fine southern art, fine southern stories and fine southern recipes,” said Lydia Inglett, CEO of Hilton Head Island-based Lydia Inglett Publishing, Marketing & Design, which oversaw the project.
An excerpt from Branning’s book, who is noted as a “cook extraordinaire,” states: “The South is a place where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter, macaroni and cheese is a vegetable, front porches are wide and words are long. Buttermilk pie is a staple. Y’all is a proper noun. Chicken is fried and biscuits come with cream gravy. Everything is darlin’ and someone’s heart is always being blessed.”
