a wonderful journey of different styles of cornbread!
on March 12, 2017
I love this book! I've had the physical book for years and just bought a Kindle version because I love this book so much!
The stories about the recipes and the regional differences just her in the US alone made it a fun read! It's nice to know where the recipes came from! :) I've made many of the different recipes and enjoyed the results! My adventure making cornbread was to start with the earlier Colonial recipes... and work my way around the world as I could! I was so glad to find the South African mealie bread here, too! Johnnycakes... hoe cakes... I could go on and on!
This was my first introduction to Crescent Dragonwagon and her work - and it remains my favorite! I had bought the book because of the the name and the topic... and her name! However, I fell in love with the book for the variety of cornbread, the anecdotes, and overall charm of the book. The recipes are delicious! This is my "go to" book if I need a cornbread recipe - and then I agonize over deciding which one!
I still enjoy this book and had to buy another because mine is a bit beaten up from use and moving! If you love cornbread, you will enjoy this book!
