From It has been more than 15 years since the Darden sisters began compiling the oral histories of elderly family members, and together with cherished recipes they have put the sum total down on paper. Much more than a cookbook, it is a rich cultural legacy that reflects the authors' African American heritage and records the impressive accomplishments of relatives. Then, too, southern origins are reflected in recipes passed down among generations, including hearty seafood and fish dishes, classic barbecued pork, and delicacies such as fresh strawberry ice cream and fudge. Even Aunt Lil's recipe for violet face cream is included in this delightful m{‚}elange. Alice Joyce

From the Publisher Spanning over a century of African-American life and culture, this classic oral history celebrates one remarkable family's heritage as told through photos, reminiscences, and recipes--now back in print after six years.
