* 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.


    1. 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.
