Deep South Dining | Cookbooks with Larrison Campbell

Community cookbooks focus on home cooking, often documenting regional, ethnic, family, and societal traditions, as well as local history. For this reason Larrison Campbell had a front row seat to the fashionable entertaining and eating that is chronicled in many of her mother’s community cookbooks. Her recent Vanity Fair essay takes a look at these time capsules and relates their recipes and traditions to more modern days. So Malcolm and Carol breakdown her essay and find out which of her mother’s old cookbooks are her favorite and relates the most to modern times.
