Avid host and Real Estate Agent-turned cookbook author Bobby Shealy recently released A Taste of Living in Charleston: Lowcountry Dishes Anyone Can Cook, his collection of recipes to show any cook, regardless of experience, that you can prepare delicious, beautiful meals using quick, easy, and simple shortcuts.
Making dishes in advance for the freezer, such as appetizers and dessert, lightens the load on the day of entertaining. Entrees and side dishes can be made a day ahead to avoid the last minute rush in the kitchen. These are some of Bob- by’s tricks for entertaining with ease found in his new cookbook, A Taste of Living in Charleston. The glorious photos featuring the charms of classic and historic Charleston, and the surrounding shoreline, give this cookbook an extraordinary sense of place.
“I love to feed people,” Shealy said. “I love the feeling I get seeing people take pleasure in what I have cooked and planned. It’s a win-win. They get pleasure from eating, and I get pleasure watching them eat what I have created. The power of food is far-reaching. It brings people together around a table, bonding, and connecting. It is used to celebrate happy times, like weddings and birthdays, and it’s there to provide comfort in sad times.”
