Born in the Kitchen: Plain and Fancy Plantation Fixin's is a rare and hard to find vintage cookbook by Flora Mae Hunter. Flora Mae Hunter was born on a plantation in Thomasville, Georgia in 1911. In this book she recounts her life, growing up on a plantation, and shares many traditional Southern recipes. This book is signed by Ms. Hunter with an inscription on the front endpaper. The recipes look great! The one that sounds especially tempting to me is Orange Cake with Chocolate Sundae Icing. You'll find this book in my eBay store - Born in the Kitchen vintage cookbook at Birdhouse Books. It would be of interest to anyone who collects Southern cookbooks, Black Americana, or Georgia history.
