Pat Conroy Literary Center – Front porch

Celebrate Beaufort, the new cookbook from Beaufort’s favorite caterer Debbi Covington, is a collection of scrumptious recipes and tales of her beloved coastal community. The handsomely illustrated volume is full of delicious menus that pay tribute to the history, heritage, and people of the Lowcountry of South Carolina–including our own Pat Conroy.

Join us for a book signing and tasting with Debbi on May 8, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. A portion of all book sales will benefit the year-round educational mission of the Pat Conroy Literary Center.

Her latest cookbook, Celebrate Beaufort, is a delectable tribute to her home in the cradle of the Lowcountry, and a testament to the kitchen wizardry that she’s shared with so many in her community!”–Matt and Ted, the Lee Bros.

“Celebrate Beaufort is chock full of recipes that are sure to bring favorite dishes of movies, family and entertaining meals, and even some of Debbi’s catering tips and other specialties, to the home kitchen.

Celebrate Beaufort does exactly that, and more, in celebrating the many pleasures of life in beautiful historic Beaufort. This is a book you’ll want to give to everyone on your gift list!”–Cassandra King Conroy
