Originally printed in 1984, To Market, To Market is an exemplary community cookbook because it captures the food culture and lifestyle that is entrenched in and enjoyed in the Owensboro, Kentucky community.
For the fifth time, the Junior League of Owensboro is releasing this nostalgic book that celebrates southern cooking at its finest and the Midwest’s great bounty.
The authentic Kentucky Mint Julep recipe calls for Kentucky bourbon and nothing less. This notable potion is also featured in the recipe for Bourbon Pecan Bread, which tastes even better if the bourbon is left to soak in overnight.
As hunting has always been a favorite pastime in Kentucky, an entire chapter is dedicated to game. Venison Stew, Savory Rabbit in Crust, Wine-Spiced Wild Duck Breasts and Elk Roast are the kinds of celebrated meals that taste even better because they were well-earned.
The delicious recipes in the ‘Vegetables and Fruits’ section, such as Escalloped Mushrooms, Kentucky Corn Pudding and Southern Fried Apples haven’t been modified to meet health-conscious standards, and thank goodness for that!
All of the recipes in this classic cookbook reflect a time when home cooking was as beloved to a family as a nursery rhyme to a child. Luckily we get to keep going back with To Market, To Market.
