Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
It has been more than 15 years since the Darden sisters began compiling the oral histories of elderly family members, and together with cherished recipes they have put the sum total down on paper. Much more than a cookbook, it is a rich cultural legacy that reflects the authors' African American heritage and records the impressive accomplishments of relatives. Then, too, southern origins are reflected in recipes passed down among generations, including hearty seafood and fish dishes, classic barbecued pork, and delicacies such as fresh strawberry ice cream and fudge. Even Aunt Lil's recipe for violet face cream is included in this delightful melange.

    Highly recommend this cookbook

    My mom bought the book when it first came out in 1978 when she was work ing at the bookstore at the University of North Dakota. We have tried several of the recipes in the book and they are wonderful. My all time favorite is the Angel Pound Cake. It is so good and easy to make. There recipes for comestics to wine in this book. If you don't know how to cook a favorite southern dish this is the book to have.
