Overview

In the University Club's early years, the major force behind the gracious dining at that elegant antebellum house was Alline P. Van Duzor, who presided over the club with a will as strong as the cast-iron skillets that hung in her kitchen. Her tempting cuisine attracted many loyal diners to the club who invariably asked for the recipes. This cookbook was the result, written by Van Duzor in 1963 in characteristically straightforward style. When originally published, it sold through at least eight printings.

The more than 250 mouth-watering recipes from the Old South contained in the now-classic cookbook are written with easy-to-follow instructions, using common fresh and store-bought ingredients. This new edition has been augmented by a guide to portions and food brand names, an index to the recipes, and an appendix of past presidents of the University Club Board.

Cookbook collectors, local history buffs, the university community, and happy cooks everywhere will welcome this reissue of a popular cookbook that preserves easy recipes in the traditions of the Old South!
