The Carolina Housewife

Front Cover
Univ of South Carolina Press, 1979 - Cooking - 236 pages
"First published in 1847 as The Carolina housewife, or House and home: by a lady of Charleston, this is perhaps THE classic Southern cookbook. The magazine Time has described it as 'an incomparable guide to Southern cuisine, ' and many of the recipes in it can be translated into the modern kitchen with little or no trouble, but it will also interest historians and book collectors. ... [Anna Rutledge] has also added a unique 'Preliminary checklist of South Carolina cookbooks published before 1935.'" A collection of approximately 600 recipes represents the united effort of women who contributed their family recipes to this book.
