Foreword by Gertrude Blair. Drawings by Herbert Temple. Jacket. First Edition Thus. Chicago: Johnson Publishing, 1973.
Originally published by DeKnight as A Date with a Dish: A Cookbook of American Negro Recipes in 1948. DeKnight (1909-1963) was Ebony Magazine's first food editor, and was a real trailblazer. The original book is considered the first major cookbook written by an African-American for an African-American audience. It showcases a wide variety of recipes from "Negro households," from Tamale Pie — which DeKnight described as "fitting in these days when California and Mexico are in the spotlight" – to filet mignon; from Shortnin' Bread to Key Lime Pie. Price clipped, else fine.
