Read an Excerpt

The natural, geographic and climatic advantages of the different sections of the sunny South have played an important part in Dixie cookery. The fertile fields, plentiful fruit trees and waterways have each contributed bountifully. Every part of the Southland is individual and distinctive in its cookery. The "Creole Dish" of New Orleans has nothing to do with racial origin but rather indicates the use of red and green peppers, onions and garlic. Oranges, grapefruit and avocados play an important part in Florida cookery. Maryland is famous for its fried chicken and its delicious sea food recipes. One thinks of Virginia, its hot breads and its sugar-cured hams. Kentucky is known for its corn "likker" and its flannel cakes. Only one thing is universally true: Every corner of the South is famous for its fine cookery. As you glance through this book you will find many delicious dishes . . . many excellent combinations. You will find here the carefully-guarded secrets of real Southern cooking, palatable and tempting to the eye. You will find accurate, tried and tested recipes . . . each one a gastronomical delight.
