About meI've had a varied career in the culinary world. Cooking teacher, cooking school owner, food stylist, editor, lecturer, pastry chef, caterer, historian -you name it. At the heart and soul of each of those positions are the thousands of books accumulated over the decades. Opening Kitchen Garden Books is the culmination of my years spent in the kitchen.

About my libraryThe Story of Kitchen Garden Books: After a long and varied career in the food world, I opened an antiquarian book store in January 2004, dedicated to the literature of the kitchen and garden. Through the years my personal collection reached several thousand volumes which forms the core of my stock. At the heart of the collection are 19th century American cookery books, charitable and classics. Since moving to the South, it has been my pleasure to acquire books from every lip-smackin' Southern state. Other sideline collections feature early Asian and Hispanic cook books printed in English. There are a hundreds of volumes on French and Italian cooking, many in their native language.
Sell old volumes Of all sorts - used, rare, antiquarian & out-of-print.
Buy old volumes Especially pre-WWI.
Search old volumes Free book searches - "If I don't have it, I'll find where it is!"
Research old volumes For students, writers & researchers.
Talk old volumes Any time, any day.

The bookstore is tucked back off the road in a palmetto, long leaf pine and magnolia setting on an acre of Panhandle hammock. Formerly law offices, the space now is crowded with bookcases in every room. The wrap around porch invites lingering over an old tome or two.
