Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan
Cross Creek Cookery
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1943. First edition of Rawlings' heartwarming cookbook. Octavo, original pictorial calico-textured cloth. Signed by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings on the front free endpaper. Bookplate to the front pastedown, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Illustrations by Robert Camp. Readers of Rawlings' 1942 pastoral idyll Cross Creek took special notice of her ability to describe food, and responded to the book with hundreds of letters asking for recipes. Rawlings obliged in Cross Creek Cookery, interweaving her instructions for Florida Backwoods Biscuits and Aunt Luella's Boiled Salad Dressing with nostalgic vignettes and insightful reflections on the many meanings of meals.
