Item Description...
Jumbles and puffs, monkey pudding, Dixie biscuits, pond lily salad, lightning cake, and foolish pie are just a few of the delightful names of dishes included in this collection, alongside more familiar foods such as crackling corn bread, lobster croquettes, celery soup, potato pies, and bread pudding. Found by researchers exploring the attic at Catalpa plantation, these "receipts" date back to 1870.

Nearly three hundred recipes originating from English and Scottish relatives, slave cooks, and neighbors in West Feliciana Parish are included here, preceded by a brief history of plantation life and plantation cooking in the antebellum South, as well as firsthand memories of Rosedown. These recipes are used in the present-day Rosedown Plantation kitchen demonstrations.

Historical recipes for yesterday and today's kitchen  Jan 21, 2007
I really enjoyed what turned out to be a very interesting peek into the south's past. You not only get a condensed history of what life was like at Rosedown and Catalpa, but a great collection of heirloom recipes. The recipes, such as the ones for divinity candy, pickled peaches, delicious dixie biscuits and chow-chow really reflect the tried and true cuisine that still endures to this day in the south. An interesting fact that I never knew until I read this book is how women came about building their "receipts" collections. It's truly a community documentation of what people eat. I can go on and on about what an incredible find this really is. If you are interested in the history of food and regional cooking, I definitely recommend this brilliant book.
Okay  Aug 30, 2005
This is a pretty good one. Some good Southern recipes, but for some reason, I sorta expected more.
Its not just for foodies...  Apr 27, 2005
I'm not a food geek (I'm a hella dishwasher, though!), but I enjoyed reading "Family Recipes From Rosedown & Catalpa Plantations". There's quite a lot of social history larded in among the cooking instructions, and I had a great time leafing through it. It would be a fine addition to the bookshelves of anyone interested in southern American history, cooking, lifestyles, or antebellum daily life.

My husband, Joe, *is* a food geek, and here's what he sez: "..when Giles and I went to New Orleans, we spent a good deal of time in the old house museums (I know... hard to believe - NOT!). The docent at the first one was probably the most knowledgeable docent I have ever run into. At the end of the tour, he noticed me in the gift shop drooling over the reprints of old cookbooks. As it turns out, he has just written a cookbook with redactions of about 300 of the 500 recipes that he had found (yes, FOUND!) in the attics of two of the plantation homes where he has also docented. (WHY do things like this never happen to me?)
If you are a historic-food geak like I am, I highly recommend it. It is a wealth of knowledge in terms of historical background, while also containing some pretty darned interesting and cool recipes."
