• African-American history • Kentucky
This 1904 book is a loving testament to the power of food-inspired memory, while being evocative of the sights, smells, and tastes of Kentucky in the 1900s. Most importantly, the book was groundbreaking, over one hundred years ago, in its celebration of the vital role Black women played in building and sustaining the tradition of Southern cooking and Southern hospitality. It is full of authentically regional Kentucky recipes. While brain croquettes may not be on everyone’s menu today, there are few who can resist the 10 variations on corn bread, or the multiplicity of recipes for biscuits, or the wealth of ice cream flavors and desserts.
