Maple, bacon, sausage, eggs, orange juice – sounds like breakfast, but what’s to stop you from eating your favorite 7 am ingredients at 7 pm?  That’s the question posed by Lindsey Landis and Taylor Hackbarth in this intriguing husband-and-wife blog book.

A wide variety of doable weeknight mains  (many of them one-pot) as served by and to the staff of Michael Romano’s many restaurants.  We tested many of the recipes at a big get-together with friends, many hands making light work.  Most were easy, and nearly all delivered reasonably pleasing results.

This gorgeous volume will cause you terrible frustration.  Not because the recipes are poorly constructed – they’re impeccable.  Not because it’s hard on the eyes – the photographs are as leisurely and elegant as the prose.

No, The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen is mostly an exercise in frustration because its most enticing recipes are based on a local ethos so compelling you can’t quite bear to substitute your own weak regional proxies.  And in those recipes whose ingredients are universally available, you can’t avoid the nagging suspicion that they’d still be better in the Lees’ kitchen than in yours.

Nevertheless, the book offers such pleasure in so many ways it would be a shame to be intimidated into passing it by.

I’m just going to go ahead and say it: this is, hands-down, the best cookbook I’ve tested all year. It’s got vibrant, new-to-us recipes that are written with clarity and attention. It’s got good design and great pictures. It’s got charming voice. But ultimately – beyond what we see on the page – what makes this book so good is the way it shapes up on the plate – the way the flavors abduct your senses and the way a whole list of new ingredients insinuate themselves into permanent residence in your pantry.
