Product description

This book is about the past and the present. It is a tribute to the ladies and gentlemen of West Georgia and their contributions to so many. Some have passed on; some remain there; and others have moved to other places. Yet all, including their children, their children's children, their friends, and relatives, keep alive the memories of the West Georgia never forgetting their families, friends, and foods. Within these pages live the unsung heroes of yesteryear. They have nurtured the sick and sustained the healthy without, for the most part, recognition of their hard work, loving care, and great legacy to all. Each recipe reflects a very special person, and it is a rare treat to be able to visit these wonderful people at work in their own kitchens. Just as important are those who have preserved the past and submitted these very splendid recipes to the book. Some of the recipes may be followed from the eastern parts of Georgia to the west as the later generations moved on. It is simply amazing how family recipes travel, not only across Georgia, but across the nation far and wide. As may be noticed, many of the recipes are quite old. Some have been updated by the following generations. One will find such terms as "ice box," "wood stove," "a hot oven," "a handful," and other expressions. I trust that the modern mind can relate these terms to modern day equivalents and equipment being thankful for our world of modern conveniences.
