Editorial Reviews

Review

"A welcome little volume. . . . Rudisill has elevated the fruitcake back into its rightful place as an American culinary icon appropriate for any time of the year."
-Midwest Book Review

"[An] enchanting book. Don't be afraid to try a few of the recipes, as they are simple to make and delicious."
-The Bloomsbury Review

From the Inside Flap

Fruitcake is a jaunty little collection of heirloom fruitcake recipes selected by Marie Rudisill from a nineteenth-century family farm journal owned by Sook Faulk, a cousin of Rudisill and Truman Capote, who immortalized Sook in his novella, A Christmas Memory. Rudisill, made famous as "The Fruitcake Lady" on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, aims to elevate the much-maligned reputation of what she calls "the queen of cakes" in this book, which features 23 enticing recipes.

Format: Paperback
Despite its honorable origins in this country, beginning with our colonial forebears, the fruitcake has become an underappreciated culinary joke. That's why Marie Rudisill's "Fruitcake: Heirloom Recipes And Memories Of Truman Copte And Cousin Sook" is such a welcome little volume. "Fruitcake" is an 80-page compendium of the history of the fruitcake followed by some rather impressive 19th century fruitcake recipes taken from a family farm journal. Showcasing twenty-three fruitcake recipes with their thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly', step-by-step instructions, Marie Rudisill has elevated the fruitcake back into its rightful place as an American culinary icon appropriate for anytime of the year.
