"First published in 1871, Mrs. Porter's New Southern Cookery Book 'for frugal and economical housekeepers' is a straightforward, no-nonsense kitchen companion. The book's cuisine mirrors the time in America's past when 'New' Southerners began to look beyond their borders, and in terms of cookery, began to incorporate various regional and foreign dishes into their cuisine. The recipes are primarily Southern with representative selections from all over the United. StatesÍ.Mrs. Porter's New Southern Cookery Book provides not only hundreds of incisive recipes, but also a step back into the past. Here is a view of the post-Civil War American character-through language, ingredients, and methods of food preparation, as well as the attractive illustrations of cooking utensils of the day. Louis I. Szathmary, Advisory Editor and internationally known chef, enriches the reader's enjoyment of this book in his informative introduction. He has adapted three of the recipes for modern day use, and his method of adaptation should be used on all the recipes in this book to make them work in modern kitchens."Binding: Hard Back
