About Matt and Ted Lee

Matt and Ted Lee

Matt and Ted Lee were raised in Charleston, SC, on long-simmered greens, slow-smoked meats, and deep-fried everything. When they left to attend college in the Northeast, they so missed the foods of their hometown that they founded The Lee Bros. Boiled Peanuts Catalogue, a catalogue selling southern pantry staples. They’re currently contributing editors at Travel + Leisure and also frequently write food stories for Bon AppetitThe New York TimesFine Cooking, and Food & WineThe Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern is their first cookbook.@theleebros
