Baking tool:





On top:

Creole chicken pie from the Far South of America, particularly Louisiana. A melting pot of especially French, Spanish and African culinary influences. But in the first place an ‘ebony’ cuisine, designed by black female cooks with a lot of dedication and fantasy. White women of the South left their kitchen and their children to the care of their black home helps als long as the years 60 of last century. In her touching book The Help (2009) Kathryn Stocket shows how things were at the time of Martin Luther King. At that time too the first cookbook was published written by a black author: Freda DeKnight, who had collected extraordinary Negro recipes for The Ebony Cookbook, a date with a dish (Chicago 1962). This recipe is based on that book.
