Additional Details

Description: Illustrated by Tasha Tudor In traditional New England houses the buttery (pronounced "butt'ry") is a small room located next to the kitchen, its shelves laden with jars, crocks; platters, and plates filled with the richness of country cooking. On a shelf nearest the kitchen is kept the Buttery Book, which is, in fact, a collection of books containing rules and receipts that have been handed down from generation to generation. 

For this unusual cookbook, Mary Mason Campbell has chosen more than two hundred treasured receipts from her own Buttery Book -- a collection that actually dates back to her great-grandmother's time. These are the author's favorites, and many of them have never before been shared with anyone outside her family. 

The delectable treats described here can easily be made today and provide a faithful reminder of the days when holidays and family gatherings were always a time for cooking and baking and filling the buttery with good things to eat. 

Mrs. Campbell invites you to enjoy with her the fun and excitement of her family traditions for celebrating festive days -- and to experience the rich and wonderful tastes and smells of country cooking that make each of these days a "very special occasion."
