A Legacy of Southern Cooking - by Mary-Ann DeSantis
If you have ever driven through Central Florida, you probably know Wildwood as the place where Interstate 75 meets the Florida Turnpike. The crossroads town has more to offer than fast-food chains at the exits, though. Just down the road from the major highways is the Cotillion Southern Café, an antique-filled restaurant where everything is “as Southern as possible.”
Justin Timineri is a certified executive chef, author, award winner, teacher and television personality. In 2006 he won the Great American Seafood Cook Off in New Orleans where he held the title of having the country’s best domestic seafood dish.
