Buxton Books present Kevin Mitchell for an in-store signing of his book Taste the State! There will be goodies including cake!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
"From the influence of 1920s fashion on asparagus growers to an heirloom watermelon lost and found, Taste the State abounds with surprising stories from South Carolina's singularly rich food tradition. Here, Kevin Mitchell and David S. Shields present engaging profiles of eighty-two of the state's most distinctive ingredients, such as Carolina Gold rice, Sea Island White Flint corn, and the cone-shaped Charleston Wakefield cabbage, and signature dishes, such as shrimp and grits, chicken bog, okra soup, Frogmore stew, and crab rice."
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Kevin Mitchell is the first black chef instructor at The Culinary Institute of Charleston. In 2020, he was named a South Carolina Chef Ambassador. David Shields is the chair of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation and Carolina Distinguished Professor of the English Language and Literature Department at the University of South Carolina.
