In this much-anticipated follow-up to her bestselling Mama Dip's
, Mildred "Mama Dip" Council serves up an abundance of
new recipes for home-style Southern cooking that is sure to please.
From catfish gumbo to breakfast pizza and peach upside-down cake,
Mama Dip's Family Cookbook
offers recipes for more than
three hundred dishes, including many Council family favorites. Also
featured are party and celebration foods for family and community
gatherings--a reflection of Council's belief that friends and
family are essential to a rewarding life. To help novice cooks,
Council includes basic information about staple ingredients,
kitchen utensils, and important measurements, as well as diagrams
for setting up a buffet.
In a charming introductory essay, Council intertwines food-related
reminiscences of her rural North Carolina upbringing with a wry
recounting of her experiences since the remarkable success of her
first book. With this book she passes along to new generations the
practical advice and wisdom that have made her a treasure to her
family and her community.
