(Southern - Virginia) Kimball, Marie. Thomas Jefferson's Cook Book

Jacket. First Edition. Richmond, VA: Garrett & Massie, 1938. 

"Jefferson unwittingly said farewell to the Virginia tradition of fried chicken, ham, greens, and batter bread when he set sail for France in 1785. The cuisine of France, which he was to discover, was a joy and a revelation to him." A lovely compilation of Jefferson's favorite recipes from France and Virginia, with recipes for sweet potato pie, chicken pudding, stewed rabbit, pigeon soup, a French soup maigre, fricandeau, bouilli, pie of sweetbreads and oysters, glazed ham, etc. Chipping and short tears to jacket extremities, cracking to jacket spine, else very good ion good jacket.
