She was a newspaper editor for the Savannah Morning News, where she was food editor, lifestyle editor, columnist and restaurant reviewer. She also wrote a food column, Savoring Savannah, for Savannah Magazine for over a decade.


She has participated in the writing of several cookbooks, including, Savannah Celebrations,  published in September, 2010, and Dishing Up Hope, with all proceeds going to higher education for the children who live in group homes in Tapachula, Mexico, where Mrs. Nesbit has volunteered as a cook for six summers. She assisted Paula Deen with the writing of four of cookbooks from 2005-2010.


The Nesbit family are great fans of oyster roasts, often buying a bushel and steaming them in the back yard as a first course to family fall and winter suppers. Martha’s specialties in the kitchen are heritage cookies and seafood of all kinds.

The Savannah Food & Wine Festival is presented by the Tourism Leadership Council, a 501-(c) 6 organization, and The AdFish Group, with proceeds benefiting the TLC Scholarship Fund, with educational opportunities for hospitality program students in colleges and universities in the Coastal Empire and many local charitable organizations.
