Down-home Southern cooking is as much a part of Kentucky’s heritage as fine horses or bourbon whiskey. Louisville’s own Marion Flexner gathers Kentucky’s best cuisine in Out of Kentucky Kitchens. Known as a skilled hand in the kitchen, Flexner compiled delicious and thoroughly tested recipes of Kentucky specialties, such as the Chocolate Almond Torte, Tombstone Pudding, and the Real Hot Brown. Colorful anecdotes, spanning 100 years of famous Kentuckians, the best hostesses, and cooks, bring this collection of the best Kentucky fare to life. Originally published in 1949, the reissue of this Kentucky classic gives generations of cooks access once again to a regional culinary guide that is a delight to use and read.

Marion Flexner (1899–1992) is the author of several books on cooking and entertaining as well as articles for Vogue, Gourmet, and House and Garden.

In spite of fast foods, and so-called health foods and other contrivances of the modern world, there’s really nothing like the satisfying and delicious wonders of genuine Southern cooking. -- John Egerton, author of Southern Food: At Home, on the Road, in History
