Mrs. Fisher’s Southern Cooking
Recipes can be stories. At Mrs. Fisher’s Southern Cooking, every dish is a chapter from the life of the extraordinary Abby Fisher. A former slave, she wrote one of the earliest Southern cookbooks, full of the flavors and ingredients of her life in the late 1800s. We have selected some of the most succulent servings of her story to share with you. Collard greens with smoked turkey, cracker-crust fried chicken with gumbo gravy, shrimp salad on a Sally Lunn roll with sweet pickles — all may have come straight out of Mrs. Fisher’s kitchen. Delight in a perfect ending of sweet potato pie with ginger cookie crust and raspberry currant jam. Outdoor service puts you right in the moment, with views of the Ackley Covered Bridge and Susquehanna Plantation.
