Down-home Southern cooking is as much a part of Kentucky's heritage as fine horses or bourbon whiskey, Louisville's own Marion Flexner gathers Kentucky's best cuisine in ""Out of Kentucky Kitchens"". Known as a skilled hand in the kitchen, Flexner compiled delicious and thoroughly tested recipes for Kentucky specialties such as the Chocolate Almond Torte, Tombstone Pudding, and the Real Hot Brown. Colorful anecdotes, spanning 100 years of meals with famous Kentuckians and the commonwealth's best hostesses and cooks, bring this collection of the best Kentucky fare to life. Originally published in 1949, the reissue of this Kentucky classic gives new generations of cooks access to a regional culinary guide that is a delight to use and read.
Marion Flexner (1899-1992) is the author of several books on cooking and entertaining as well as articles for Vogue, Gourmet, and House and Garden.
