Description


More than 200 recipes and 45 full-color photographs celebrate 25 years of good eatin' in this original regional Southern cooking classic.

A quarter-century ago, while many were busy embracing the sophisticated techniques and wholesome ingredients of the nouvelle cuisine, one Southern loyalist lovingly gathered more than 200 recipes--collected from West Virginia to Key West--showcasing the time-honored cooking and hospitality traditions of the white trash way. Ernie Mickler's much-imitated sugarsnap-pea prose style accompanies delicacies like Tutti's Fancy Fruited Porkettes, Mock-Cooter Stew, and Oven-Baked Possum; stalwart sides like Bette's Sister-in-Law's Deep-Fried Eggplant and Cracklin' Corn Pone; waste-not leftover fare like Four-Can Deep Tuna Pie and Day-Old Fried Catfish; and desserts with a heavy dash of Dixie, like Irma Lee Stratton's Don't-Miss Chocolate Dump Cake and Charlotte's Mother's Apple Charlotte.
