Annual Winthrop Roundtable Explores the Roots of Southern Cooking

On Tuesday, March 13, the Friends of the Library welcomed Executive Chef Sean Brock and Professor David Shields to the Winthrop Roundtable. After a delightful dinner of Bisque a la Creole, Fresh Striped Bass, and Strawberry Cornmeal Cake, Brock and Shields discussed the restoration and preservation of one of the great cuisines of America: the South Carolina Lowcountry cuisine. The evening’s menu was adapted from an original 18th century cookbook and many of the ingredients used were locally sourced. Click here to view a video from the evening!
