Aunt Bee's Mealtime in Mayberry
by Ken Beck & Jim Clark
Special Note: This 1999 book is out of print and hard to find, but we've found a copy that is still nicely preserved. And best of all, our price is still obtainable--despite the book's collectible rarity and such good condition.
Hardcover (with dust jacket). This third Aunt Bee cookbook is 220 pages and contains 144 all-new Mayberry-style recipes. There are also 117 color and black-and-white photos, 83 of which have never before been seen in print! The photos span all eight seasons of TAGS. The cookbook also includes excerpts of episode dialogue dealing with food, cooking, and eating in Mayberry.
Though a few of the classic photos and bits of dialogue have been used in other books, most are being published here for the very first time. And all but one of the recipes (Doug's Great White Beans) are brand new.
The cookbook highlights (in chronological order) 72 of the show's episodes that feature food -- beginning with "The New Housekeeper" in the first season and continuing through "Sam for Town Council" in the final season. Photos and dialogue from the episodes are accompanied by recipes for the actual foods seen or discussed in the episodes. So you can quite literally eat your way through all eight seasons of the show!
From fried chicken and homemade pickles to butterscotch pecan pie and chocolate cake, from apple pie and meat loaf to taters and spaghetti, this cookbook has the recipes, dialogue, and photos to bring Mayberry memories to life. (And remember what Barney ordered at the fancy French restaurant in Raleigh? Well, for better or worse, you'll find it in this cookbook!)
