Biscuits & Belles: Official Biscuit Guide and Guide to Southern Bellery. Published 2005. 24 recipes, 64 research notes, 36 pages. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Soft cover, saddle-stitched. ISBN-10: 1-929384-05-X. ISBN-13: 978-1-929384-05-1.
“As the kind readers who collect my cookbooks have possibly noticed, I am inordinately fond of biscuits, so much so that I decided to write a whole book about them,” comments Patricia B. Mitchell. “I also love writing about Southern life, so I decided to also talk about the charming lasses of the South.”
The volume contains numerous recipes such as “Kiss My Mouth Sweet Potato Biscuits,” “Healthful Whole Grain Biscuits,” and “Orange Cocoa Afternoon Tea Biscuits.”
Perhaps even more enjoyable to think about than the recipes are the observations and old quotations about Southern ladies of the belle variety. To read about gals almost too delicate to withstand the touch of the wind will surely make you smile.
