Charleston Receipts, first published in 1950, is the oldest Junior League cookbook still in print. By all accounts, it remains one of the classic Southern cookbooks. It's remarkable not only for the lasting quality of its recipes, which inspire new generations of cooks and celebrate the natural bounty of the region, but for embracing the closely woven culinary heritages of the elite Lowcountry aristocracy and the Gullah people, descendants of the slaves who worked on the rice plantations in South Carolina and Georgia.
