What's a trip to Savannah without a quick jaunt to Charleston? Our excuse this time to check out the Heirloom Book Company, located at the memorable address of 123 King Street, a store devoted to cookbooks both old and new. Yes, ma'am, forget fiction, surely we're not the only ones who curl up with a good cookbook?
Stylishly spare in decor with food photography on the walls and bits of kitchenalia interspersed between the latest culinary tomes and vintage cheeky titles like, "Saucepans and the Single Girl". The subtitle is even better, "The cookbook with all the ingredients for taking that light-hearted leap from filing cabinet to flambe".
And what's a trip to Charleston without a run down Meeting Street and then a foray into the alleys and lanes for some serious window box gawking. By now they're lush and overflowing from all the sunshine and rain. Here are some new ones and a couple re-visits, after a few trips you cotton on to who plants the best ones. Enjoy...
