Two audio cassettes. On side one, Hunter discusses her life's history and her experiences as a cook in various homes and plantations in Florida, Georgia, and Ohio. After marrying, she was hired as a cook for the Baker family at the Horseshoe plantation and worked for them for thirty-six years. She cooked for many prominent guests, including the former Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Mr. and Mrs. Tolbert, and others. She discusses serving food at field trials (dog racing contests held at plantations); cooking collard greens for her family; pan broiling quail; cooking over coal and wood; differences in the kinds of food she cooked for her family and the kinds of food she cooked for the families she worked for; and her parents' farming work. On side two, Hunter discusses a story about making deviled eggs in a version she named Horseshoe eggs; learning to cook both by experimentation and by instruction; her favorite recipes (turkey dressing, chicken sandwiches); remembering how her family members butchered hogs to make sausage and liver pudding; grinding cane; her quilt making; attending Springhill Missionary Baptist Church; playing instruments at church; and the successes of her grandchildren.
