Indian Cookin Book


    "Frances Whisler began the work of trying to preserve cooking techniques of North Carolina's Cherokee Indian in 1970. In an antique shop she found pieces of paper written by a Cherokee woman who had passed away before she could finish the collection. Whisler picked up the trail from there and created a collection of natural cooking techniques as well as a priceless piece of history.

    With today's supermarkets and readily available food we tend to things for granted. Whisler's cookbook reminds us that the land provides everything we need. This concept was embraced by the Cherokees in their day-to-day life. They used the resources of the land for everything from cooking to curing. Whisler even managed to find Medicine Man Remidies and added them in her cook book.

    Originally the book was written to bridge the gap between Native Americans and the Caucasians. In the cookbook she writes, "A flame carried from Cherokee, North Carolina to Oklahoma during the trail of tears. This flame still burning in both North Carolina and Oklahoma is to cause us to remember the flame of love not the flame of hate." Her hope for this book was to keep a little spark of history and friendship burning for future generations to come."
