Carolina Housewife

by Sarah Rutledge
Introduction by Anna Wells Rutledge

From the publisher: A facsimile of the 1847 edition, with an Introduction and Preliminary Checklist of South Carolina Cookbooks Published before 1935 by Anna Wells Rutledge. Sarah Rutledge’s cookbook was a Charleston standby through the years and considered by some authorities to be THE classic Southern cookbook. The introduction is a delightful miscellany of information on Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry of years gone by.
