Description: Good food and a quiet friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy it -- these are becoming increasingly hard to find in this day and age of rush, bustle, and noise. It is a fast-moving, rocket-propelled era in which we now live, and for that very reason meal times should provide the kind of food and the setting which encourage relief from fatigue and tension. This is what the University Club provides under the skillful direction of Alline P. Van Duzor. 

Tuscaloosa is a city of many good cooks who prepare wonderful food in their homes and also appreciate good food when they eat out. When they eat at the University Club they frequently ask Mrs. Van Duzor for her recipes. Here in these pages she has spread "the secrets" of the foods which she serves and which has rightly become famous. 

Some cooks use precious recipes handed down in the family for generations; others copy their recipes from various sources; but some rare individuals use their own imagination and creative touch to lift even the simplest food into the realm of delightful and well-remembered taste experiences. It is this special creative touch that Mrs. Van Duzor brings to all her food ... what can compare with the cooking of the Deep South! The very mention of Southern cookery calls up visions of gustatory pleasures. Good cooking surely should have a Southern touch! And good cooking means you need good recipes to start from.
