While pouring through old letters, photographs, journals, diaries, etc., chatting across fences with farmers and sitting on porches listening to stories about "hard times", we came to a couple of rather profound conclusions. First, the rural South has a proud heritage that must not be tucked away and forgotten. And second, "an old black pot can't be beat when you want something fit to eat."
Ethel Rayson Dixon was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. As one of eight children, she learned the art of cooking at an early age. Even though Ethel has traveled throughout the world, tasting and preparing culinary delights of all kinds, she prefers foods that are simple, tasty and cooked in "that old black pot". It is this love that inspired "Big Mama's Old Black Pot Recipes".
