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.

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.

Description
Four audio cassettes. Meeting between project participants and the project's advisory committee to review and revise the project's publication, Documenting Maritime Folklife: An Introductory Guide.
