A Patsy Cline cookbook
The Patsy Cline Historic House in Winchester has published a special Patsy Cline cookbook titled From the Kitchen of 608 South Kent Street.
The cookbook includes some of Cline’s favorite family recipes, including her instructions for fried chicken. Other contributions came from her family, fans and country music legends such as Whispering Bill Anderson, Barbara Mandrell and George Jones.
“Hilda Hensley, Patsy’s mother was known for her baking, and the book includes the recipe for her famous Black Walnut Cake” said Judy Sue Huyett-Kempf, executive director of the Patsy Cline Historic House.
Huyett-Kempf, said the cookbook is not just recipes but includes cooking techniques, never before seen photographs of Cline and memories from family members about life at 608 South Kent Street. Julie Fudge, Cline’s daughter, wrote the books forward.
Tim Poole compiled the recipes, and the book was designed and put together by Allan Mace, curator at the Patsy Cline Historic House.
