Re: [CA] types of food 1958
In Response To: Re: [CA] types of food 1958 ()

Richard, and 3tHawkins,

Those are great ideas. I have an old Betty Crocker cookbook and an old Joy of Cooking and a cool little leaflet I found at a thrift store. But I remember hearing two neighbors in West Adams talk about "down home cooking." One was Creole, the other's family had been Texas share-cropper, and for about two minutes, they could not agree on a single, familiar meal, until one mentioned red beans and rice. That, finally, was down home to both. So I figured that the cooking might be different for Leola, who is kind of black nobility from Charleston, but maybe she cooked some of her mother-in-law's recipes, too--more Southern via New York--but I thought all those would be different from Betty Crocker, who was invented up here in Min-ne-so-ta, (make sure you say that with a Scandhoovian accent, as they say up here. Uff-da.)

Sorry--too much detail, and I know you folks are working genealogy.
