* New Bibliography Available, on Southern Food & Cooking & Stuff

Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows that I love books passionately, especially cookbooks and any books about food.

Because of my current emphasis on foods and cooking and foodways of the American South – tied as all that is to social change and the influx of new population groups – I have created a small (to me) bibliography of books about the South and its ever-changing food.

You will find the bibliography by clicking HERE, or by clicking on A PINT-SIZED BIBLIOGRAPHY ON THE SUBJECT OF SOUTHERN FOOD & COOKING or on the sidebar to the left.

And one more thing: a bibliography, true to the nature of the beast, is never complete. So if you think I should add something (or subtract something, too), just drop me a line in the Comments section.

  • I would respectfully add the Gulf City Cook Book, Compiled by the Ladies of the St. Francis Street Methodist Episcopal Church, South, Mobile, Alabama, 1878.

    In addition, I would note or mark which vintage cookbooks are available on the Internet Archive scanned from an American library (archive.org) or available on the Feeding America site.


    • Robert,

      Thank you for your suggestions; I have followed through and added links to the vintage sites, as well as adding the Gulf City Cook Book.
