1942 Cross Creek Cookery Cookbook
This First Edition, published in 1942, was compiled by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. It is full of "Old Florida" Florida recipes, anecdotes, and lore all based on the Author's Life in the "cross Creek" Florida Hamlet.
Lovers of old-fashioned, down-home fare will treasure the recipes for Grits, Hush-Puppies, Florida Fried Fish, Orange Fluff, and Sinful desserts. For more adventuresome palates, there are such interesting dishes as Minorcan Gopher Stew, Coot Surprise, Alligator-Tail Steak, and an oddly delicious cream of peanut soup!
This book showcases the rare culinary heritage of the deep tidal South!
