In the South, a culture steeped in the traditions of hospitality and entertaining, desserts are an integral and anticipated part of the daily ritual of dining. The authors, Mary Leigh Furrh and Jo Barksdale, have gathered the very best regional sweets from many sources: family files, famous Southern restaurants, generous friends, and cherished, out-of-print cookbooks. Recipes for 100 of the finest cakes, candies, cookies, pies, and other sweets, accompanied by interesting historical facts and legends, are featured in this volume.
As the Southern states developed, numerous cultural groups influenced the region's cuisine. In Williamsburg, the English ancestry was apparent with tables of assorted creams, jellies, puddings, and molds. Farther south, in Charleston, the English traditions meshed with the French in soufflï¿½s, boiled custards, and whipped-cream creations. In the Deep South, centering on New Orleans and the luxury-loving Creoles, elaborate soirï¿½es required elegant, impressive desserts such as crï¿½me brï¿½lï¿½e or the classic cherries jubilee. In Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas, the resourcefulness of cooks and their Celtic heritage brought forth irresistible teacakes and baked goods.
