For nearly twenty-five years, Mildred Council--better known by
her nickname, Mama Dip--has nourished thousands of hungry folks in
Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Her restaurant, Mama Dip's Kitchen, is a
much-loved community institution that has gained loyal fans and
customers from all walks of life, from New York Times food writer
Craig Claiborne to former Tar Heel basketball player Michael
Jordan.
Mama Dip's Kitchen showcases the same down-home,
wholesome, everyday Southern cooking for which its namesake restaurant
is celebrated. The book features more than 250 recipes for such
favorites as old-fashioned chicken pie, country-style pork chops, sweet
potatoes, fresh corn casserole, poundcake, and banana pudding. Chapters
cover breads and breakfast dishes; poultry, fish, and seafood; beef,
pork, and lamb; vegetables and salads; and desserts, beverages, and
party dishes.
The book opens with a charming introductory
essay, a savory reflection on a life in cooking that also reveals the
story behind Council's nickname. It is both a graceful reminiscence of a
country childhood and the inspiring story of a woman determined to make
her own way in the larger world.

I loved this book. Mom got it when we were shopping & I just had the opportunity to sit down & read it. I couldn't put it down. I thought it was an autobiography & it sort of is but it's more of a cookbook. Normally that is a plus for me but after reading "her story", in the guise of the introduction, I wanted more. Her life was harsh by today's standard but she was happy. She reminds you that a simple life can be a beautiful life.

It also reminded me how great it was to live in the country & to be surrounded by the richness country life offers. My familly didn't farm but Mom & Dad bought a farm during Mom's Foxfire period & we were perfectly happy while we lived "out of town". At some point they planted a variety of fruit trees & Mama Dip reminded me how much we loved the bounty of those trees.

This is definitely a book you can embrace if you crave &/or enjoy the simpler things in life. ...more

This is one of those cookbooks that I enjoy reading. Although I don't use the recipes often, I appreciate the craft of the "soul food" recipes. It also brings back memories of the days when I visited Mama Dip's restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. Mmmm, mmmm. I can taste the country style steak with gravy right now.

A quick read - I liked the intro w/her stories of growing up in an age of few luxuries but many joys the best. I only wrote down 1 recipe (Apple Hobo Cake), not that they weren't good, but I basically already had the rest. They're the basics of country cooking, and it would be a great book for a new cook.

Mama Dip's autobiography at the beginning of the book was really interesting. The recipes on the other hand... I was sadly surprised to see so many processed ingredients (cream of whatever soups, etc.) in allegedly down home, homemade cooking. I didn't see a single thing I wanted to try.

This is my all time favorite cookbook. Classic southern food...not the healthiest but the best and you can slim down most of the recipes, although i wouldn't.

I admit I'm addicted to cookbooks. The introduction about her early life is worth the price of the book alone.
