More About the Author

Patricia Mitchell began foodwriting as a contributor to The Community Standard magazine in the French Quarter of New Orleans in the early 1970's. After she and her husband Henry returned to their hometown of Chatham, Virginia, in 1975, Patricia put her writing on the "back burner" while restoring an old home (the Sims-Mitchell House, which the Mitchells operated as a bed and breakfast for over twenty years) and starting a family (now her assistants Sarah, David, and Jonathan). In 1986, requests from B&B guests helped motivate Patricia to compile some of her recipes into book form. In a providential turn of events, a visiting museum director asked to purchase some of the little books for resale in his museum's shop. Soon a re-order came, with suggestions for an even greater emphasis on food history.

Over a hundred Inkling Series titles later, Patricia and her enterprise have sold over three-quarters of a million copies at museums, historic sites, bookstores, and shops in 49 states and internationally.

Poring through diaries, letters, microfilmed records, and mountains of old books, Patricia spends endless enjoyable hours in her search for clues to Americans' eating habits and cooking techniques of years gone by.

Format: Paperback
"Is that a real fire?" "Are you really gonna cook on that fire?" "Are you really gonna eat that?" These are just a few of the questions that I have been asked, being a Confederate reenactor for the past 7 years. I am always on the lookout for Civil War camp receipts (recipes) to try to improve the impression the public sees in our camp around meal time, and this book has helped to add greatly to that impression. Mrs. Mitchell has captured an outstanding collection of camp recipes that are easy to do at home as well as in the field. She has added some good information and spiced it up with a touch of humor. I have tried most of them and find them to be quite good. From Mock Apple Pie to Oyster Stew, they turn out good enough to rate a "Rebel Yell" from anybody that likes to eat well. I highly recomend this cook book to any reenactor,Yankee or Rebel who wants to put a little authenticity in his diet other than hardtack and beef jerky, and to anyone else who wants to try a taste of Confederate Camp Cooking. Happy eating!
