Authentic household recipes from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. When Daniel and Martha Turnbull began in 1820 to build an estate that would eventually encompass seven plantations, they could not have known that for more than 120 years their family would continue to live, thrive, and enjoy good food at Rosedown. Recently, researchers exploring the attic at Catalpa plantation discovered the family receipt book, with recipes dating back to 1870. This published version of this heirloom contains a wealth of primary material, including early family recipes and photographs. Added to this material are an explanation of the influences on plantation cooking, a brief history of the plantations, and photos of vintage cooking utensils. These recipes are demonstrated today in historical cooking classes in Rosedowns open-hearth kitchen.
