May 1–2, 2014, Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston has an rich culinary history, with extraordinary restaurants and foodshops and a strong tradition of cookbook writing. Matt and Ted Lee grew up savoring the cuisine of their native city, and when they left for college they so missed their hometown foods that they founded a mail-order company, The Lee Bros. Boiled Peanuts Catalogue, where misplaced southerners could get fig preserves, stone-ground grits, and of course boiled peanuts. Since then they've developed a second career as food and travel journalists. Their 2007 The Lee Brothers Southern Cookbook has won multiple James Beard and IACP Awards, made Publishers' Weekly 100 Best Books of the Year list, and won accolades from Gourmet magazine and the New York Times book review. Their new book, The Lee Brothers Charleston Kitchen, is out now and will be available at the ASI conference.
Indexers love food and cookbooks, and I know you'll be excited to hear about matters culinary from the Lee Brothers. But the Lee Brothers also have a connection to indexing: they really appreciate the value of a good finding aid, and on their website they have created what our own Pilar Wyman has called an "index mashup," an index to all the recipes in their cookbooks. Matt and Ted Lee will be talking about indexing their cookbooks, creating the website index of recipes, and other aspects of indexing in their keynote address. (Photo credit: Squire Fox)
