A great combination of recipes and stories about them. It was written by the Pulitzer Prize winning author, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. She complied it shortly after writing a novel of the same name. In fact, like many Southern cookbooks, most of the recipes in Cross Creek Cookery actually belong to Idella Parker, who was Rawlings maid for ten years.


After hundreds of letters asking for recipes after readers loved her Cross Creek. Rawlings obliged in Cross Creek Cookery, interweaving her instructions for Florida Backwoods Biscuits and Aunt Luella's Boiled Salad Dressing with nostalgic vignettes and insightful reflections on the many meanings of meals.


A very handsome; giftable, collectible copy.
