Since the first publication of Seaboard to Sideboard in 1998, to the recent third printing, the Junior League of Wilmington has had much to celebrate in the success of their first cookbook. Seaboard to Sideboard was declared the 1998 Official Cookbook of the North Carolina Azalea Festival, won a 1999 Tabasco Community Cookbook Award for Best Regional Cookbook of the South. In 2000, four recipes from the book were honored in the Hometown Collection of America’s Best Recipes, and in 2002 recipes were selected for inclusion in Southern Living’s Homestyle Cooking.
With dozens of historical tidbits across time from the Civil War to the latest television programs shot in Wilmington, Seaboard to Sideboard is a keepsake and a “must have” for novice cooks and seasoned chefs alike. Open this cookbook and take a grand tour of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear to meet legendary, colorful characters. Enjoy a generous serving of Southern hospitality as you learn how to prepare an old-fashioned Oyster Roast or host a proper Azalea Festival Tea. Experience our timeless tastes and traditions by sampling the flavorful recipes served in our city’s distinctive restaurants.
