Whether you have been to Savannah, GA or you are thinking about going, one restaurant must be on your list: The Olde Pink House. Located at 23 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31401, The Olde Pink House is Savannah’s most celebrated restaurant. From the crispy founder to the fried green tomato BLT salad the Olde Pink House offers some of the best versions of southern classics in an amazing atmosphere right off of Reynolds Square.
We will be writing a full post and review of the Olde Pink House, but today we address one major problem with Olde Pink House. When you get home from Savannah, you crave the classic taste of Olde Pink House dishes. This is exactly how Tera and I felt, so naturally I started to investigate and found the The Olde Pink House actually published a cookbook in the late 1980s. Then I came to the harsh realization that the cookbook was no longer in print and my only hope to cook those amazing recipes was going to be able to buy it from a private individual. I quickly realized that the cookbook had become a collectors item and can often sell for over $100. Fortunately, you can frequently find it for much less. My advice is to check from Amazon and Ebay for the current best deal on the cookbook.
One of our favorite recipes from the Olde Pink House Cookbook is their classic fried green tomatos, we use them to recreate their BLT salad with fried green tomatoes.
Recipes from Olde Pink House contains a full menu of recipes fore every month of the year full of southern classics like garlic cheese grits and Savannah red rice. I recommend seeking this cookbook out if you want to bring great southern recipes into your kitchen.
