First Black Woman to Publish Cookbook

What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking, Soups, Pickles, Preserves, E

Mrs. Abby Fisher was the first Black American woman to record her own recipes. A former slave from Mobile, AL, Abby Fisher lived and worked in San Francisco as a cook and caterer in the late 1870s. Mrs. Fisher's cookbook, published in 1881 by the Women's Co-operative Printing Office of San Francisco, notes awards and support from the local community, and her thoughtful preface explains the difficulty she had bringing her receipts to print.
