Description: Charles Patteson's charming and witty account of Kentucky's cuisine ranges from authentic family recipes and reminiscences to discourses on such quintessential subjects of this region's distinctive cooking as the soul-satisfying properties of country hams and the history of Kentucky's beloved native drink, bourbon whiskey.
As a Kentuckian whose family were among the original settles of the then untamed frontier, Charles Patteson is the ideal guide to the varied culinary traditions of this fascinating region. His recipes range from such substantial pioneering fare as Taylor County Burgoo, the hunter's stew which has become known as one of Kentucky's great native dishes, to the elegant French recipes acquired by 18th- and 19th-century Kentucky hostesses in order to entertain their European visitors.
The Patteson family cuisine boasts particularly fine versions of such down-home dishes as Green River Catfish and Hush Puppies, Fannie Bell's Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Pie, along with family favorites like Pork, Campbellsville-Style, Green Pepper Puddin', Jame's Old Southern Beaten Biscuits and Kentucky Bouron Butter. The cuisine of this elegant state's great social occasions -- the hunt, the holidays and grandest of all, the Derby -- includes dishes that are festive yet readily prepared in any home kitchen.
The book's vivid narrative and charming drawings make it an incomparable guide to a fascinating culinary tradition.
