If you have not already read the book Spoonbread and Strawberry Wine, you need to run, not walk, to the nearest bookstore and get a copy. I have read mine so much that the pages are falling out of the book. I had to buy a new copy for my mother. This book is cooking and genealogy mixed together. I forget the names of the sisters that wrote it but I think that they now run a restaurant in Harlem.
Anyway, this book is complete with recipes, stories, and pictures of their relatives. You will enjoy it!
Peace and Blessings.
