The Smithfield Cookbook ... Continuing Traditions
Edited by Caroline Darden Hurt and published by The Woman’s Club of Smithfield, Virginia. ISBN: 978-0-9845387-0-6. Hardcover with 320 pages including index. Copyright 2010.
More than just a compilation of tried-and-true recipes from Smithfield and Isle of Wright County in Virginia, this cookbook reads like letters left from long-gone family members with secret family recipes handed down over generations. These recipes date back as much as 350 years and feature tips for the reader to achieve the authentic Virginia taste. Personal anecdotes fill the pages of this endearing book which also does not skimp on factual history of the region’s traditions from farming to cooking methods.
The cookbook has interior spiral binding which allows it to lay flat when opened.
