Format: Hardcover
Besides being a really cool looking vintage item for display in your kitchen, the recipes are authentic, old-timey "best recipes" compiled from the best cooks from southern plantations. Not for the "heart-healthy" diet, because almost every recipe is made with butter, lard or bacon, but it's all so good. History is depicted in the poems and cartoons of the time. A wonderful piece for any kitchen and a historic piece to be handed down for generations. Be careful. Later reproductions have been printed without the cartoons and poems, as they were not deemed politically correct. In my opinion, that removed the flavor and historic quality of the book and rendered it into just a common cookbook. Nonetheless, you'll want to try every recipe....except maybe the "possum" ...LOL

This little cookbook is a real slice of the past. Presented in what is probably a hand-painted wooden cover, the drawings and recipes speak from a time long gone, when people lived differently, thought differently, and certainly cooked differently. Within these pages there is a glimpse of a way of life in which cooking and the mealtimes were still a central part of each day. The recipes, some of which are surely handed down from generations from well before the 20th century, transported me back to a time when I stood on a little wooden stool and watched my great grandmother work her magic on a bowl full of biscuit dough. Quaint verses scattered throughout the pages are certainly not politically correct, but bring the life and a certain time in the old south back to life. If you're a fan of southern cooking, just reading the recipes will make your mouth water. This cookbook is part history book, part cooking tool, and it holds some of the best recipes you'll ever hope to find!

The print in this cook book on the Kindle is too small to read you can not
adjust the print. Please tell me how I can get this corrected or to adjust my account. The title is Southern cook book of fine old dixie recipes.
