Publisher's Summary

History Lover's Cookbook will transport listeners through the Battle of First Bull Run/Manassas to April 9, 1865, where General Robert E. Lee stood under an apple tree to dispatch his surrender to General Grant. Do you know what he was eating when he surrendered?

Prepare a picnic of lemonade, raspberry shrub, mint julep, fried chicken, ham sandwiches, potato salad with boiled dressing, cold slaw, soda biscuits and quince marmalade to observe one of the many Civil War re-enactments throughout the United States. Share in the Union's Thanksgiving holiday by preparing recipes from the chapter, "Siege at Petersburg". Find out what General Grant ate every morning with his breakfast.

    Story
    "Clear, Strong and Accurate in every way!"
    Where does History Lover's Cookbook rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high, in the very top.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the clarity and voice of the narrator as well as the obvious love of the subject.


    What does Dave Wright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His choice of a southern gentleman's accent was brilliant and really brought you "into" the book in a unique way.


    What did you learn from History Lover's Cookbook that you would use in your daily life?

    As a living Historian it was wonderful to hear these stories played out so passionate way. I love the idea of a History/Cookbook done in the form of an audio book. It adds a depth that most cookbooks could never hope for and story telling is a plus in any form. The author is truly in love with what she is writing about and it shows all the way through this beautiful book.


    Any additional comments?

    As an aside, a cookbook done in this audio format would seem ideal for those people with visual impairments. I couldn't be happier with this wonderful book!

    Story
    "Wonderful, Interesting Cookbook"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Roxe Anne Peacock has succeeded in the difficult task of making a cookbook interesting to the listener as well as the reader. She does so by placing us in the times and the event of America’s Civil War. She then skillfully relates how particular dishes were eaten when and by what Union or Confederate officers. We feel as if we there, at those soldiers’ meals, taking a moment of culinary delight between the horrible battles. The research for the war is first rate. The research for the soups, breads, entrees, and desserts is outstanding. You’ll want to buy the book as well so you make the tasty recipes yourself. Good listening. Good eating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a cookbook, but I always like anything about General Lee.


    What does Dave Wright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can listen to it while driving.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Oh gosh, I love the stories. Her research is extensive and astounding.


    Any additional comments?

    Love it.

    Story
    "Wonderful Narration for a Civil War Cookbook"
    If you could sum up History Lover's Cookbook in three words, what would they be?

    History and Cooking


    What does Dave Wright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved his reading of the historical references. His southern accent was perfect for the topic.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from History Lover's Cookbook?

    Tidbits of history I didn't know made the Civil War come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I have the ebook version, I was listening more for the history than for the recipes. For anyone who is an audio learner rather than a visual one, this is a great tool to help history come alive.

    Story
    "Not Just A Cookbook"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you want to learn some history and get great recipes this is the book for you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author did a great job incorporating the recipes with the history.


    Have you listened to any of Dave Wright’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had never listened to Dave Wright's performance before but I feel he did a great job with this book. His voice is easy to listen to. I will definitely look for more audible books by Mr Wright.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from History Lover's Cookbook?

    I learned some new facts about the Civil War. And I will be trying some of the recipes and sharing some of the history along with it.
