A Secret Civil Rights Kitchen

Georgia Gilmore & The Club From Nowhere

Georgia’s Legendary Sweet Tea

This sweet tea was served to Martin Luther King, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Bobby Kennedy, and the laundresses and schoolteachers of Montgomery, Alabama who gathered around the Gilmore’s table. Georgia’s son, Mark says, “When she served this tea with her cornbread, nobody could refuse.”

2 cups cold water
3 family size tea bags
1 cup sugar
Lemon juice, to taste

Place the two cups water in a pot and add the tea bags. Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and let it sit. Pour warm tea into empty pitcher. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Add lemon and let it sit over night in the refrigerator.

NASCAR Kitchens: Feed the Speed

The Grand National Racing Wives’ Auxiliary cookbooks include recipes for favorite race day and  racing family dishes. The cookbooks are sold to raise money to aid families who are faced with the injury or death of a driver.  Many of these original recipes reflect the cooking of the golden age of racing from Race Day Rump Roast, and Busy Day Casserole to Polka Dot Salad.
