Many of these date back to the Civil War to the time the Southern Sates were known as the Confederate states of America, C.S.A. Confederacy.
Since mammies couldn't rely on written receipts or recipes, most of the wonderful recipes from these great cooks derive from tradition and experience formany were not learned in the manner of reading and writing. They created magic in their kitchens with whatever they could.
It is adorned with numerous illustrations and songs sung by the plantation slave of the Old South. These songs are historically important as it wastheir attempt to preserve the Negro culture they had brought with them from Africa.Although the drawing were meant to celebrate the rich history of the SouthernAfrican-American when the book was published, today we would call these images stereotypical, politically incorrect, and even demeaning in some cases.
Many of these make use of the "N" word whichspeaks volumes of the era in which this book was written.
