With a foreword by the Duchess of Windsor: "Every country in Europe has certain dishes for which it has always been famous. That is many times true of the United States, which has a different culinary tradition for every large section. I myself am most familiar, of course, with Southern cooking, and especially the dishes of Maryland... I have been very happy to help carry some of the well-known dishes of my native land to other countries, and especially to have served on my table Southern dishes which appeal to the Duke... It is the simple dishes of my homeland which are most popular with me, and which are the ones most frequently served at my table." Contains nearly 140 recipes including soups, fish and shellfish, meats and cheese dishes, vegetables, hot breads, salads, desserts, cakes, and preserves. A few typical Southern menus are given, and also a brief selection of the Duchess' favorite foreign recipes.
