Salt and Shore: Recipes from the Coastal South

Salt & Shore presents a delightful assortment of sustainable recipes that showcase the unique flavors and culinary heritage of the coastal communities throughout the South. From the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, the cuisine of the coastal South is expansive and dynamic, drawing from a rich and sordid history of colonization, exploration, and cultural exchange.

Beyond the delicious food and drinks, Salt & Shore highlights the interconnections between foodways, culture, history, and the environment. At its core, this book honors the individuals who have worked tirelessly to build a more sustainable and equitable food system in the South, including fishers, farmers, chefs, artisans, blacksmiths, docents, and community leaders. Our aim is to foster a deeper appreciation for the region by sharing some of our favorite stories about the people and places we’ve encountered during our wide-ranging exploration of the area.
