Speed Family Heritage Recipes
by Susan E Lindsey
From humble spoonbread to chocolate caramels and gingersnaps that snap, this collection of recipes gives today’s cooks a glimpse into the kitchens of the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Hattie Morton Speed gathered her own treasured recipes and those of her close friends and family. These recipes are reproduced exactly as they appear in Hattie’s collection, followed by notes from modern cooks who tested and refined them and brief bios of the women who, so many decades ago, prepared these recipes with love. All profits from the sale of this book are used to preserve and maintain Farmington Historic Plantation. Three Women Who Write members were involved with this project: Susan Lindsey was a co-author and editor; Peggy Grimes was a co-author; and Cheri Powell coordinated book production and publication.
