Praise for The Boathouse

“The Boathouse: Tales and Recipes from a Southern Kitchen is a perfect example of one of my favorite types of cookbooks. It’s not only loaded with mouth-watering recipes; it’s also a good read, packed with regional history, personal tales and ingredient tips. It’s a great culinary and cultural reference.”

                                                     BOBBY FLAY, restaurateur, cookbook author and CBS-TV food correspondent

“Richard Stoney’s two venerable Boathouse restaurants have grown up with contemporary Charleston, and everyone is better for it. This charming cookbook is a mélange of the best of Charleston eating and most colorful of Charleston’s “characters.” I found it irresistible!”
