THE NASHVILLE COOKBOOK: Specialties of the Cumberland Region is a regional cookbook published in 1977 by the Nashville Area Home Economics Association.  The cookbook has been named a Southern Living Hall of Fame winner.

Throughout the cookbook, beautiful pencil drawings by late Tennessee illustrator, Burnard Wiley of Nashville landmarks introduce each chapter--Newsom's Grissmill, Maxwell House Hotel, The Parthenon, Traveller's Rest, The Hermitage, Downtown Presbyterian Church, Belle Meade Mansion, Opry House, followed by a full-page description of the property. 

The 340-page cookbook is filled with wonderful Southern recipes like Beaten Biscuits, Fried Chicken with Pan Gravy, Hush Puppies, Oyster Stew, Shrimp and Crabmeat Au Gratin,  Corn Bread Dressing, Chicken Gumbo, Cheese Grits, Black-Eyed Peas, Lemon Tea Bread, Apple Cake, Pecan Pie, Benne Cakes, Cheese Wafers, Watermelon Rind Pickles, and 100s more!

The 340-page comb bound cookbook measures 10" high by 7" wide and is in good used condition other than some cover roughness: fading, staining, and bent edges.  The Southern Living Hall of Fame sticker is on the front. This is a copy from the eleventh printing in 1993.

A must-have addition to your culinary library, this cookbook is an example of a community cookbook. Frequently published by a group of women as a fundraiser, these treasured cookbooks allow us to gain a unique insight into American culture, social norms, and the collective history during an era. Through the recipes, kitchen equipment used, household hints and headnotes, the reader is provided a valuable snapshot of historical details that might not be documented elsewhere. As a result, these cookbooks have become unofficial records of the past, often valued by collectors and culinary scholars more for their historical relevance, than the recipes inside.
