Editorial Reviews

Review

The humble fruitcake gets another chance.--Athens (Ga.) Banner-Herald

[Rudisill] is an accomplished cook and writer.--St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times

For those who still think that it's not worth it, or who think that they do not have the time or stamina for making their own fruitcake, Rudisill's book is an inspiration, though not as much of an inspiration as she is.--Oxford (Miss.) Eagle

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

A sweet holiday treat.--Publisher's Weekly

Praise for the first edition

"Marie Rudisill…aims to rescue from ignominy the dessert she considers to be 'true ambrosia--the queen of cakes.' Rudisill knows whereof she speaks. . . . Just reading [the recipes]…is satisfying enough.--Gourmet

[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

Even a reader who harbors no love for fruitcake will delight in this little book.--Baton Rouge Advocate

Review

Are Southern fruitcakes America's best? For me, absolutely. But if you harbor any doubts, the repertoire of handed-down family recipes in Marie Rudisill's Fruitcake will lay them to rest.--Jean Anderson, from the foreword

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.

My fault...if I had read the description of the book and seen how tiny it was I wouldn't have wasted the money on it. I can find more fruitcake recipes on line in 5 minutes that are better or the same as this book.

the service was better
