St. Paul’s cookbook serves up history with family recipes
The contribution of community cookbooks is not to be overlooked in the Lowcountry’s rich food history.
For one, they have given a voice to generations of families cooking “real” food day in and day out. By real, I mean recipes used by countless home cooks whether they were preparing an appetizer for a party, fixing Tuesday night’s supper or baking a cake for a church bazaar.
They are recipes with generally accessible ingredients that aren’t too long or hard to follow. Among them are old recipes that speak to our culinary past.
