Soul Food Cook Book: Terrific out-of-print cookbook, the Soul Food Cook Book, by Bob Jeffries, Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1969. Hard cover with dust jacket. 116 pp. Dust jacket has a lot of shelf wear and little tears. Book is in fine condition. The recipe for scalloped corn alone is worth the price! Beyond the normal chapters on soul food, chicken, pork and barbecue, this book includes chapters like “Truck Garden Fare.”
If your sister, your mother, your friend, or your colleague asks you where you found this vintage cookbook, please tell him or her: Vintagecookbook.com!
At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
