Black History Month | Write It! Day 3 | What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking

Abby Fisher is the cook behind the second known cookbook by a black woman in the United States, find out more about her life and who could play her should her life ever be brought to the screen.
Official Summary: What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking is a cookbook written in 1881 by former slave Abby Fisher, who had moved from Mobile, Alabama, to San Francisco.




My Thoughts: As a fan of most things vintage, I was so pleased to find such an old cookbook
with recipes made and cooked by a woman of African descent. Abby Fisher learned these recipes
on a plantation in the 19th century. I look forward to mastering the recipes of the talented Mrs. Fisher.


You can get your own copy of What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking here!

There are so many different reprints of the book. I have the 1995 reprint.



However, you may like a version with a cover that looks more authentically vintage.
