Overview

   Seventy-six of the best tried-and-true homemade recipes from a bygone era, lovingly selected from the notebooks of 95-year-old Dulcie May Booker. This edition, Compiled by her granddaughter, talented foodie Natalie Oldfield, Gran’s Kitchen is sure to satisfy the current interest in traditional cookery in a very personal way. A little of the old, a little new, it is full of simple, comforting, and easy-to-make cakes, breakfasts, dinners, and desserts, as well as her secrets to award-winning baking and preserving. Not only is this book a beautiful cookbook, but it is also filled with wonderful family love and community spirit. At times achingly nostalgic, Gran’s Kitchen is peppered with reminiscences and photographs of a once-typical but now disappearing lifestyle of pastoral dances and neighborhood dressmakers. Laden with warm, gorgeous, full-page images, it is the perfect gift for a grandmother, or a granddaughter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Seventy-six of the best tried-and-true homemade recipes from a bygone era.” ~Atlanta Journal Constitution
 
“A little of the old, a little of the new, the book is full of simple, comforting, and easy-to-make cakes, breakfasts, dinners, and desserts, as well as Gran’s secrets to award-winning baking and preserving.” ~Cookbook Digest

"...the type of ode we'd pay to our grandma if we were writing a cookbook....a book overflowing with colorful photographs of food and family. There are quick fries, sweets, savory pies, pasties, quick breads and more. Instructions are simple and straightforward, the ingredient are in weights and not measures (grams and ounces versus cups). The variety and simplicity of the recipes would make this a perfect gift for a mom who wants to share with a young daughter the joys of baking and cooking." ~McClatchy Tribune
