A beautiful and vivid recollection of her childhood on a farm in the black-founded township of Freetown, Virginia, Southern food icon Edna Lewis gathers here memories and menus that are uniquely American. Organized by the four seasons, and then subdivided by seasonal events such as the annual spring sheep shearing and Emancipation Day dinner, her evocative storytelling brings these moments and flavors to life.

In addition to featuring recipes such as beef kidney pie in puff pastry, dandelion blossom wine, and fresh peach cobbler with nutmeg sauce, The Taste of Country Cooking also teaches the reader to render lard, can green beans, and grow herbs indoors upon a windowsill.

Soft cover with black and white illustrations throughout.

Edition: 1976.



Very good.
