Book Description:

The first ""A Date With a Dish"" appeared in 1948; it reappeared as ""The Ebony Cookbook"" in 1962, and has stood the test of time. Freda DeKnight’s selection from the thousands of American Negro recipes in her collection is unique. It preserves many dishes that might otherwise be lost to a TV-dinner generation. It provides a guide and reference for everyone, from novice cook to discriminating gourmet, who loves good food. The uses of herbs, spices and wines, a ’Guide for the Housewife’ (which really tells how to cook), and a section of complete menus supplement the organized presentation of recipes for everything from appetizers to dessert.
