Description: The Decatur Junior Service (Junior League of Morgan County) is proud to present its Cotton Country Cooking cookbook. Cooking in the heart of the South has always been a blend of French, Spanish, African, and English skills. It combines the best memories of the Old World and the fresh products of the New World to produce a marvelous, unique cuisine.
The Junior League has tried to preserve that unique blend in our collection of recipes with months of kitchen testing and careful evaluation of each of the entries. The new bride will find directions for cooking turnip greens and roasting a turkey as well as interesting menu suggestions. The gourmet cook will find Oysters Rockefeller and Bananas Foster enticing, plainly presented, and fascinatingly delicious. And all of us in-between cooks will find recipes that will renew and invigorate our efforts, such as old-fashioned custard ice cream, truly like grandmother made.
In a special section, Southern Hospitality, professionals such as J.C. Greene from the Old Lyons Hotel Dining Room, Romey Woods, Mrs. Elbert Chandler, Russell Priest, and John Harris have generously shared with the League some of their best recipes. The culinary specialties of historic Hooresville, Alabama's oldest incorporated town, and Courtland, where slave-built homes still stand and heirs of the early families still live, have been passed on to the League.
