Savannah Classic Desserts
This collection of recipes is coupled with a history lesson on the most popular restaurants and cafés in the city. B. Matthews was the first tavern in Georgia in 1792 and is constructed from old ship parts. Their B 52 Cheesecake is more up-to-date than their building, using Irish Cream liqueur and Heath bar crunch cookies. Vic’s on the River likes to share its traditional Southern food with customers, such as its Sweet Potato Crème Brûlée. The former cotton warehouse also shares a piece of history from the Civil War. Union soldiers mapped out Sherman’s march from Tennessee through Georgia on one of the walls. Part of the original map is still on display.
