RENICK- Two eateries in Greenbrier County are now featured in the new Southern Living cookbook, "Off the Eaten Path: Favorite Southern Dives and 150 Recipes That Made Them Famous."

Both the Star Dust Cafe in Lewisburg, and the Crazy Baker, in Renick are featured in the book. Both businesses are owned by twin brother and sister.

The Crazy Baker provides granola and pastries to the Star Dust Cafe as well as large retail food stores throughout West Virginia and the United States.

Hall Hitzig divulges two of his favorite recipes in the cookbook that he says he has even made for his wife.

According to Southern Living what sets the Crazy Baker apart is that he "is bonkers over quality ingredients."

Hitzig says that he only uses premium and all natural ingredients that make his products taste better and more healthy for the consumer.

"It may cost a little more, but I have been told it's well worth it."

Hitzig says he prides himself on running his business in the Greenbrier Valley. "Its truly a unique place, I have traveled all of the world, and there is just no place like here. Its where I have raised my family, and where I love to live."

Southern Living also commended his twin sisters business, the Star Dust Cafe located in downtown Lewisburg.

"When a restaurateur talks passionately about her farmers and supplies, and she knows the farmers by name, you can bet you're in for a delicious meal."

The cookbook is being sold at the Star Dust Cafe, Bella The Corner Gourmet and most major bookstores.
