What’s Cooking at Dry Branch Ranch
Author: Brenda Konitzer
If you go to the Camden Farmer’s Market, you can find annual and perennial herbs, heirloom tomatoes and a variety of peppers from Dry Branch Ranch. The author and her mother grow those plants at the ranch, and in this cookbook she offers many recipes using what she grows. The recipes, illustrated by color photographs, are both for everyday use and for special occasions, but the book is also a memoir of sorts, telling stories of Konitzer’s life triggered by smells and tastes. Konitzer, who lives at the ranch in Lugoff, is also a steampunk artist (illustrations with a mix of fantasy, science fiction and history), nature photographer and writer.
