Shelves: cookbooks
i want to pull quotes, but it's just too much of a muchness. how did i miss my chance to live in an 'apartamento' in rome with a roof garden of obscure herbs and wormwood, broken up by jaunts to research cookbooks whose scope is bounded only by my whims?

n.b. the racial politics are pretty rough, as you'd imagine for a book that approvingly mentions minstrelry (albeit as metaphor, but, still) in the second or third paragraph.

Would make a good primary source for 1971, but that's because it was very, very dated. Race, class, and gender all horribly out of date. The food--still delicious looking.

Great book, by Eugene Walter who was a wonderful author. The book is about Southern culture, not just food. There are also some great recipes!
