Sassy Southern Cooking with a French Twist

For the Love of Leon’s

I’ve got it BAD for this new oyster and poultry destination on Charleston’s increasingly
“upper” Upper King Street.

Here’s a picture of the fried chicken:

Leon's fried chicken comes out of the fryer smokin' hot and very spicy.

Please remember to pick up a copy of my latest cookbook release, The French Cook – Soups and Stews (Gibbs Smith, Sept. 1, 2014).  I’m happy to send signed book plates to anyone who asks for one to afix to their new book!


As always, bon appetit!

  • You just said two words I love to hear — hot and spicy. And then add oysters into the mix and I think I’m in heaven. And last but not least thank you for the signed book plate for my new cookbook.We are looking forward to putting lots of stains in the cookbook. We do love our soups!!

  • Marisa – it is some outrageously delicious fried chicken. I really love everything I’ve tried here and I’ve been several times. I’m so glad you’re enjoying your new cookbook and the book plate! Best, Holly
