A Thousand Years Over a Hot Stove: A History of American Women Told Through Food, Recipes, and Remembrances
"We find native women who pried nourishment from the wildnerness, slave women who sold biscuits to buy their children's freedom, colonial settlers who prevented starvation, and immigrant wives who cooked foods in new homes to fortify their families' souls. From church bake sales and Betty Crocker to today's time-pressed microwaving moms, this book is a celebration of women's lives, homes, and communities. Over fifty recipes, from Federal Pancakes to Sweet Potato Pie and Gypsy Soup, are beautifully presented with over one hundred images from artists, photographers, and rare archival sources."--BOOK JACKET.
