About this title


Young cooks can learn about cooking in the Civil War era. Through words and pictures, with recipes and instructions, they will learn to make Addy's favorite foods.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8?This slender, 18-recipe theme cookbook is historically accurate, thoroughly researched, and well documented. Evert ties the information and recipes to events in the "Addy" books (Pleasant), which revolve around a girl who, with her mother, escaped from slavery. Breakfast dishes include grits, pork sausage and gravy, buttermilk biscuits (made with lard), fried apples, and scrambled eggs. Recipes are well illustrated with full-color drawings and photographs and methods are clearly described. Dinners are heavy on bacon and fried foods. Addy's favorites, such as chicken shortcake, collard greens, cornbread, potato salad, lemonade, peach cobbler, pound cake, and shortbread are included. Every page includes a factoid from the time period, augmented by archival black-and-white photographs. Descriptions of an Emancipation Celebration and a Juneteenth Party appear at the end of the book, along with suggested games, foods, table settings, clothing, decorations, and music. This is in no way a heart-healthy offering, but it is a faithful description of dishes of the late 1800s and a wonderful asset to historical cooking sections.?Carole B.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
