COOKBOOKS~old and new~

i have a pretty large collection of cookbooks, from classic Julia Child to the old Victory Garden cookbook, seafood of New England as well as the Caribbean, must-have Fanny Farmer baking, 'JOY', the kitchen bible, too many to list! a few antiques also, they are fun.

i just ordered this one. my Mom was a Southern lady, so i ordered it for my sister too. reviews sounded delicious!

The Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook

Stories and Recipes for Southerners and Would-be Southerners
2007 James Beard Cookbook of the Year

From the book jacket:

The Lee Bros. long-anticipated first cookbook is a culinary coming-of-age tale, narrated in recipes and amusing anecdotes, of how two boys learned to cook Southern without a Southern grandmother Inside, you’ll find exceptional recipes for Fried Chicken, Crab Cakes, and Red Velvet Cake, the Southern classics that have become restaurant hits around the country. But you’ll also find lesser-known preparations such as St. Cecilia Punch, Frogmore Stew, and Shrimp Burgers—dishes that seem fresh and original agains the backdrop of iconic American comfort food. Also here are recipes that bear the hallmark of the Lee Bros.’ style: simple yet sophisticated dishes such as Hoppin’ John, Scuppernong Grape and Hot-Pepper-Roasted Duck,a Sweet Potato Buttermilk Pie that ushers Southern cooking into the twenty-first century while never losing sight of its deep roots. No one brings the same blend of witty intelligence, reverence and since passion to Southern food culture.

RE: COOKBOOKS~old and new~

the English are not noted for their cuisine, but i bought this for the anecdotes and old-style illustrations in pen and ink.
puddings, meats, game, pasties, cheeses, interesting stuff.

Geez, the Lee brothers could be OP and Dick. I just think the pastel shirts should be plaid.

I have a lot of cookbooks. I even had bookshelves built in to each end of the island to store them. The closest I ever get to them is to run the feather duster over 'em.

RE: COOKBOOKS~old and new~

for all the cookbooks i have, i think my favorite recipes are the many handwritten ones saved in a file from my Grandmother and Mother. all loose and unsorted, just there, food-stained and cherished.

I remember those guys from TV. They are famous for country captain.

I have cookbooks, but never look at them. The Internet has every recipe I need if I don't already know how to make it. My favorites are the regional church cookbooks. You can trust church ladies to make good food.

This is the one I like most lately:

I also love those regional church/charity cookbooks, I have a few that a really treasure.
"50 Years 1944-1994" Hope Lutheran Church Cookbook, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Printed in December 1993.

"Forum Feasts" ("favorite recipes from friends of The Forum School") I have copies from 1970, 1978 and 1988. The Forum School is in Waldwick, NJ

"Helping Hands at Allstate presents The Happy Cooker", published in NY in 1985. I don't remember where it came from, but all funds generated went to local charities. I occasionally still cook some recipes from it.

Nice article about "Forum Feasts" here: http://www.northjersey.com/news/11750530...them_.html

RE: COOKBOOKS~old and new~

I first read about these fellows in the New York Times I believe and here they are doing what they LOVE to do out in the country and they have a new Cookbook which I've mentioned on here and one of them was a former Drag Queen no less - they have their own T.V. Show - I think their Cookbook is very very good!

Reese is relentlessly entertaining as she relates her food and animal husbandry adventures, which amuse and perplex as well as nourish and sustain her family.

RE: COOKBOOKS~old and new~

I have some really old cookbooks, the ones that use the old time measurments screw me up though.

What is that? We have used the English Standard System for pretty much ever.

Does this help?:
60 pounds apples = 1 bushel
52 pounds beans = 1 bushel
24 pounds beets = 1 bushel
56 pounds carrots = 1 bushel
55 pounds flour = 1 bushel
54 pounds onions = 1 bushel
45 pounds parsnips = 1 bushel
50 pounds potatoes = 1 bushel
60 pounds string beans = 1 bushel
60 pounds sweet potatoes = 1 bushel
48 pounds tomatoes = 1 bushel
196 pounds turnips = 1 barrel
1 gill = 12 cup
1 pottle = 2 quarts
1 coomb = 4 bushels
1 wey = 40 bushels
1 last = 80 bushels
1 firkin = 9 gallons
1 anker = 10 gallons
1 runlet = 18 gallons
1 tierce = 42 gallons
1 hogshead = 63 gallons
1 puncheon = 84 gallons
1 butt = 126 gallons


I always knew you were a firken puncheon butt.

RE: COOKBOOKS~old and new~

I always wanted this cookbook, but I never get it because I know I won't use it:
[Image: images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQCM_6Z5h8UM8vKL8USEKB...uujzk7Txhw]
I just want it to have because I read the books. So I will resist.
