I am quite sure that I would not be happy with the kichen as described in this book. HOWEVER, there are things in this book that I really, really, really wish we could still have. Raw milk sales are illegal almost everywhere or labeled must be as "pet food". Nobody has a smokehouse full of hams and almost all bacon is flavored by brine injection. Even if your neighbor did have a smokehouse, the government would not allow you to buy anything.

This is a book about real food. I love my fridge and freezer and stovetop burners and temp controlable oven. Sometimes I even appreciate the microwave. I just wish we all had a better grasp of what it takes to put a meal on the table and the freedom to choose what we want.

I had expected a traditional (both context-wise and style-wise) cook book with recipes which I intended to use purely for research purposes. But this is not a strict "recipe" book. Nor is it a more loosely styled recipe book with text.

It is straight prose styling and absolutely delighful. It contains mountain vernacular - but not to the extreme. The recipes that it contains are narrative - more suggestions - as in "To it was added the whole array of giblets...." and "They made heaps of rich gravy to add to that in the turkey pots".

While you probably wouldn't cook Sunday dinner directly from the book, it will surely make you wish you were back there having Martha McCulloch-Williams do the cooking for you.

What a great little book! Charmingly written with tasty recipes mixed well with southern lore and a sprinkling of southern tales. I felt like I was listening to my grandmother!

Before we forget, this book helps capture the daily chores of our past generations. Today, most think the grocery store contains what always has been, read this and you will appreciate how everything is used in concert with nature. Other poorer countries still have these skills, lest we forget and realize there was life and joy before big box stores.

This is clearly an old fashioned cookbook. Lots of old time recipes from back in the day. Modern cooks would probably not like it. There are some interesting tips about how things used too be done. I did not care for this book.
