The Chesapeake Collection: A Treasury of Recipes and Memorabilia from Maryland's Eastern Shore
“The really great cooks of the Eastern Shore, when confronted to share their recipes, usually hedge with, 'Well, I put in a smidgen of honey, a little tad of onion, a small sliver of fat back...a handful of walnuts, but then again, I use a handful of raisins if I don't have the nuts.?’?”—from the foreword by Dr. Thomas A. Flowers. The Chesapeake Collection, created in 1983 by the Woman's Club of Denton, Inc., has captured these “tads” and “smidgens” and translated them into 460 recipes that any creative cook can use and enjoy serving to family and friends. This is the first Tidewater Publishers’ issue of a popular favorite that sold 15,000 copies in its first two printings.
