Local caterer Debbi Covington has just published her newest cookbook titled Celebrate Beaufort and it’s full of tasty ideas for your next Lowcountry dinner, picnic or party.
Covington’s third cookbook, Celebrate Beaufort is a collection of scrumptious recipes and tales of her beloved coastal community. The illustrated volume is full of menus that pay tribute to the history, heritage and people of the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
“Celebrate Beaufort is a fun cookbook with lots of delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes,” Debbi said. “The food photography by Susan DeLoach is absolutely beautiful. In my new cookbook, I share a couple of stories about local history and local people. It’s a love letter to my adopted hometown,” she added.
With a price tag of $28, the book is available through Debbi’s website, www.cateringbydebbicovington.com, at Nevermore Books, The Beaufort Bookstore, McIntosh Books, Lulu Burgess and Michael’s Salon.
