Description: Is it true what they say about Dixie -- that it's the home of some of the finest cooks and most tempting cuisine in these United States? If you have any doubts, just glance through this delightful collection of old Southern specialties, many of which have, until now, been closely guarded family secrets.  

Recipes from the Old South is bursting with mouth-watering dishes to suit every mood and every occasion. There are old favorites like Beaten Biscuits, Oven-Fried Chicken, and Peach Cobbler; colorful concoctions such as Ham Pops, Tipsy Cake, Texas Toasts, and Dulcet Cream. And, for patriotic holidays, scores of ingenious ideas for "historical" meals, including Mrs. George Washington's Crab Soup and Robert E. Lee Cake. 

Being a native Virginian, the author has some savory suggestions for preparing ham: ideas like ham loaf, ham baked in "blankets," even ham cooked in Coca-Cola or ginger ale! Her succulent seafood dishes, from Oyster Sausage to Steamed Shrimp, have sprung directly from Tidewater recipe books and Creole kitchens. 

She has discovered desserts whose names alone are a delight: Southern Belle Cake, Rum Cream Pie, Maids of Honor (a Richmond delicacy), plus a sweet surprise called Mississippi Mud. There are also sections on breads and muffins, appetizers, vegetables, egg dishes, salads, sauces, jellies, jams, beverages and confectionery. All of the traditional recipes have been modified and simplified for the modern cook -- without losing one ounce of their old-fashioned richness! 

Lovingly and painstakingly compiled, presented in easy-to-follow style, Recipes from the Old South is not only a necessity for Southern brides, but is certain to be appreciated by happy husbands as far north as Anchorage, Alaska.
