Overview

The fragrances, emotions, and tastes of the famous Tuskegee Institute, founded by former slave Booker T. Washington in 1881, are evoked in this collage of personal vignettes, pictorial accounts, poetry, and more than 200 traditional recipes. The history and entertaining information in these pages conjures the spirit of the small southern town of Tuskegee, Alabama, that for over 100 years has been a mecca and center of progress and education for African Americans. Not just a collection of recipes, The African-American Heritage Cookbook includes memories and literary passages intended to honor a notable American landmark. Beginning with the final days of slavery and extending through the Victorian period, the world wars, and the struggle for civil rights, this collection brings alive the pain and pride of suffering sharecroppers, the aspiring students of Washington's fledgling school, and of the thousands of graduates who have gone forth to change America and the world.

Capturing not only the tastes but also the emotions of Tuskegee, the historic black university founded by former slave Booker T. Washington in 1881, this cookbook includes pictorial accounts, personal vignettes and poetry to complement the more than 200 traditional recipes contained in these pages. Photos throughout.

    Taste Just Like My Momma's

    This is an excellent example of how my mother cooked. The recipes are simple, yet rich. If you've parents or grandparents from the deep South, who knew how to take the simplest of ingredients and turn them into masterpieces, then you will enjoy every single recipe in this book. Family and friends are constantly asking to borrow my copy because there's a recipe or two that's 'just like momma's...grandma's... auntie's'. It's good to know the art to genuine Southern cooking will be around for many generations to come.

    Exceptional

    This is absolutely the best cookbook I have ever owned. I needed a cookbook that was not complicated, but had good old fashioned southern recipes. This was it. If you want old fashioned recipes that taste great, then this is the book for you. I especially enjoyed reading the historical excerpts from Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver and others. This is the type of book you would pass on to your daughter.

    Outstanding

    African Americans do not have a lot of resources when it comes to our heritage and cooking except for standing along side your mother or grandmother when they were cooking in the hot kitchen. The African-American Heritage Cookbook will give you that sense of heritage with its 'down-south' recipes that will allow you to make foods just like mama used to. I use it everytime I cook!
