We get many questions from customers about what our “secret ingredients” are, so we’re finally spilling the beans: we don’t have any. Really. Southern cooking was born out of necessity and uses simple ingredients like butter, cornmeal, and pecans to create comforting, wholesome meals. So while we put a twist on classic meals like our Cajun Jambalaya, Pimento Shrimp and Grits, and Lowcountry-inspired Fried Green Tomato Avocado Caprese salad, our dishes begin with the basics.
Just like all good Southerners, we hate to turn people away empty-handed, so we’ve put together a list of Southern cooking pantry staples you have to have on-hand.
At the Cottage, we pride ourselves on making elevated dishes that begin with fresh, local ingredients. Are you getting hungry? Join us for breakfast Mon-Fri (9-11 am), Sat (8-11 am), or for Sunday brunch (8 am-2 pm). We’re also open for lunch Mon-Sat (11 am-3 pm). We can’t wait to see you soon!
