Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Buttermilk biscuits, Sweet Potato Casserole, Pecan Pie--these are a few of the dishes the South is justifiably famous for. But what about Texas Mucho Torpedoes, Mediterranean Rice Salad, and Apple-Lokshen Kugel?

The Confederate Cookbook: Family Favorites from the Sons of Confederate Veterans has gleaned 340 of Dixie's finest recipes from contemporary Confederate kitchens from Florida to Alaska. Here you'll find delicious, traditional recipes that evoke the flavor of the Old South, as well as savory contemporary and regional favorites from all over the country that will make your mouth water.

So pour yourself a big glass of sweet tea and enjoy! Fascinating historic anecdotes and previously unpublished images of identified Confederate soldiers are here for your perusal, along with easy-to-use instructions on how to make some of the most delicious dishes ever to grace your sideboard.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a patriotic and hereditary organization dedicated to preserving and defending the history and principles of the Confederate States of America. Founded in 1896, the SCV currently has over 27,000 members coast to coast and in several foreign countries.

Compiler Lynda Moreau is a professional book publicist who is directly or collaterally descended from over ten Confederate soldiers. She is an avid collector of vintage Gone with the Wind memorabilia, and an unabashed lover of all things Southern. She makes her home in Metairie, Louisiana, with her husband (an active member of the SCV) and their two children.

From the Back Cover

Southern hospitality has always meant good conversation, friendly smiles, and an invitation to dinner. True to the region's tradition of elegance, gracious living, and delicious cuisine, The Confederate Cookbook: Family Favorites from the Sons of Confederate Veterans presents almost 350 time-honored family recipes handed down from past generations, along with regional classics and contemporary local favorites.

As the oldest patriotic and hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers and sailors, the Sons of Confederate Veterans continues to preserve, defend, and perpetuate the history and principles of the Old South. With over 700 camps and 27,000 members coast to coast, the memory and sacrifice of the men who defended the Confederacy, as well as the heritage, history, and record of the Confederate States of America, endures.

Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a patriotic and hereditary organization, have submitted a variety of scrumptious handed down Southern family recipes compiled and edited by Lynda Moreau. A guaranteed taste of the Old South. Be sure to try the Tea Cakes.
The members have also included interesting anecdotes of their Confederate ancestors including photographs and illustrations as well as information about the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

The Confederate Cookbook is the star of my cookbook collection. The recipes, family favorites of Sons of Confederate Veterans and their ancestors, are the best. Photos of those ancestors and chronicles of their service to the south make this a must have book, not only for cooks, but for anyone interested in preserving Southern heritage. I gave one as a gift and treasure my own copy.

Format: Hardcover
I just got my copy and have not had time to try any of the recipes, but the text listed on each contributor is worth the price, along with the pictures of the veterans. The Sons of the Confederate Veterans and the publisher are to be commended for this work. It is time we all took a look back and honored our ancestors who fought for a cause they dearly believed in. To honor them and to preserve our heritage and history as it really happened. In the light of the attacks on their memory and the effort to destroy and/or change history as it really happened, this book should be in the library of every buff of the War of the Rebellion. I can't wait to dig into Great Granny's Confederate Sweet Potato Souffle.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was really excited when I bought this book thinking that these were period recipes and recipes handed down from generation to generation. Each recipe is just a modern recipe that families with a Civil War ancestor happen to like. I only counted one recipe that did not involve a modern ingredient ( Velveeta, Tabasco sauce, muffin/cornbread mix) and most of them have many modern ingredients. This book really gave no historical information whatsoever. If I was just looking for modern recipes, I would have went to the library. I'm sure this book was good for homemakers who like to feel that they are preparing "authentic southern dishes," but it's just not the case. I was really disappointed, if you are looking for period recipes, this book isn't for you.

I first tried a recipe out of this book at a friend's in North Carolina. I asked to thumb through the book to look at the other recipes and was immediately taken. As soon as I returned home to Montana, I got onto Amazon and orderered it. I've cooked recipes out of this and have already gotten several people asking for the recipes. I'm going to order more to give as Christmas presents. I LOVE this cookbook! I love the old time recipes which are already tried and true. Feels like coming home when cooking and eating these great recipes!
