With its first edition published in 1955, Recipes from Pawleys Island was compiled by churchwomen of All Saints Waccamaw Episcopal Church, celebrating the bounty of coastal South Carolina. You’ll find fun lessons on clam digging and creek shrimp catching along with regional staples, including classic pilau and Hoppin’ John. And because Southerners love their sweets, you can’t miss the dessert section, which practically takes up a third of the book.
