Chef Rick is a food writer who reckons he's got the best job in the world as he gets to spend every day thinking about, writing about and cooking Southern food. He learned all about Southern cooking at his grandmother's knee and a friend from Charleston taught him the wonders of Low Country cuisine, the delicious blend of seafood and rice from the South Carolina tidal basin.
Even though he is a native North Carolinian, he has always had a special love in his heart for the people and food of Louisiana. Cajun and Creole cooking are his specialities.
He has very kindly allowed us to reproduce some of the wonderful recipes etc.
