"Bonjour, y'all!" This popular slogan for Croissants Bistro & Bakery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, encapsulates an unlikely pairing of two distinct culinary traditions. European cuisine and Southern home cooking seem at first to be strange bedfellows -- are they serving coq au vin or biscuits and gravy? -- yet diners quickly discover how this restaurant blends the best of both cultures to a savory union.
This fusion fare evolved from the creative vision of Heidi Vukov, owner and operator of Croissants.
This book is a celebration of diversity in cooking. The recipes demonstrate how a time-honored ingredient can be shaken up a bit, paired with a new taste, and enhanced with a different cooking style. The dishes reflect a sincere respect for the land and sea of the lowcountry with a nod to European tradition, and they offer a peek into Heidi's mind, heart, and palate.
