SPREADING THE CULINARY GOSPEL SINCE 1986

Hoppin' John's® is owned by cookbook author John Martin Taylor, best known for his southern culinary expertise and his stone-ground grits and cornmeal. Hoppin' John opened his culinary bookstore in 1986 in Charleston, South Carolina, but switched to website and phone sales in 1999. He is the author of four cookbooks, including Hoppin' John's Lowcountry Cooking (20th Anniversary Edition now available); The New Southern Cook (Bantam, 1995); Hoppin' John's Charleston, Beaufort & Savannah: Dining at Home in the Lowcountry (Clarkson Potter, 1997) and The Fearless Frying Cookbook (Workman, 1997).

I have recently donated my papers to the College of Charleston Special Collections and my culinary library to the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach. You can read about it here.
