Lincoln's Table: Victorian Recipes from Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois to the White House is a collection of recipes, each one of which has been traced to Lincoln's dining table at some point in his life. That table may have been the rough table made by his father, or the beautiful elaborate dining table used for state dinners in the White House. Some recipes were enjoyed by the Lincoln family in Springfield. Others were relished in fine New York restaurants, the homes of friends, or boarding houses where Lincoln stayed when he was a circuit lawyer. They all share one common thread - Lincoln enjoyed them. A sampling of the recipes included are: Sorghum Cake; Fried Green Apples; Nancy's Pork Chops and Greens; Young Abe's Gingerbread Men; Beaten Biscuits; Mary Todd's Courting Cake (or Burnt Sugar Cake).
