Originally published in 1974, this second cookbook from the NC State University Women's Club is a fine of collection of recipes, but the best part are the tips and tricks for hosting large parties and gatherings provided by a veritable who's who of North Carolina politics in the 1970s and 80s. Many North Carolina buildings are still named after these families and I can assure you that these were the ladies in Raleigh that knew how to throw a party for five or five-hundred.
The recipes in Favorite Foods from North Carolina Kitchens contain a wide variety of popular recipes at the time, but the regional recipes are really the stars of the show. Brunswick Stew, Moravian Cookies, Apple Stack Cake, Apple Dapple Cake, Peach Ice Cream, and an entire chapter on "Salads" that features a veritable museum's worth of Jell-o salads.
You don't have to be part of the Wolfpack fan club to love this fun vintage cookbook.
From the Publisher:
More than twenty years ago, the North Carolina State University Women's Club published its first cookbook.
The leavening for THIS cookbook has been on the back of the stove for a number of years, warmed by time and raised by the enthusiasm of the membership to undertake such a project again.
Putting a cookbook together is no small feat, but Margaret Glazener and her committee have made it seem so. With great skill and imagination they have collected and edited the materials. Much gratitude is due all of them.
One only has to attend a function of our Club when the members have provided the foods to realize that the culinary arts are taken seriously and the results delicious. And so it is that we offer you another collection in the hope that these will be recipes you will want to remembers and use often. ~Mary Lou Eycke, President
