"You will find here, published for the first time in book form, we believe, the truly amazing recipe for "Kentucky Burgoo," and the celebrated recipe for "Pot Likker," which is a familiar dish in almost every part of the South, particularly in the homes of the poor white and the negro. We believe this book to contain a remarkable cross-section of fine recipes and we hope you will find it a valuable aid in your culinary efforts."
