Dishes and Beverages of the Old South Hardcover – Facsimile, October 1, 1988
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
