Virginia Seasons: New Recipes from the Old Dominion
This is a fantastic and still relevant cookbook for home cooks. The chapter on wild fowl is fascinating and the seafood section is an excellent reference for dependable classics. The recipe for Mitchie Tavern's Fried chicken is a winner. The desserts section is fabulous, but the highlight is, as in many Virginia cookbooks, Martha Washington's Great Cake. The good news here is that the recipe is cut down to a reasonable volume. Most of the other recipes I've seen will generate enough dessert for the entire Continental Army.
From the Publisher:
