This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Full edition, 198 color photos, step-by-step instructions.
A collection of favorite foods that also reflect the history and folklore of Mobile and the surrounding areas of Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Many ways of Southern cookery contained in this collection hail our surrounding area.
Featuring images of vintage postcards of our area as well as 198 photos of food preparation with step-by-step instructions.
Each recipe in this collection is prefaced by a “story” that is either based on facts derived from our area’s historical chronicles or is drawn from traditions that have been passed down for generations. All stories either reflect upon a past time and place or offer an insight into our cultural “personalities”. Many recipes refer to our harvested crops -- especially seafoods -- that are so important in our area, and that we are fortunate to have in abundance. We believe you will enjoy our “stories” for their lightness as well as their facts, and we feel sure you will enjoy these recipes!
