Author, illustrator, and culinary expert Ethel Dixon draws on her knowledge and background to share her love for Southern cooking in a multitude of ways. Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Dixon learned the art of cooking at a young age. As one of eight children, she often helped prepare meals for her family. She has cowritten and contributed to a number of cookbooks that are useful and important in additional ways besides providing delicious recipes. Many of them strive to incorporate different cultures and different time periods, addressing important social issues and changes in the ways of Southern life.
Dixon has traveled throughout the world and has prepared delicious meals for a wide range of people with varying tastes. Although she has experimented with many types of food, she prefers recipes that are simple and tasty. Her loyalty to the cooking she grew up with is clear in her recipes, which provide delicious food and radiate Southern hospitality.
Dixon is a descendant of a plantation family that owned slaves. Teamed with Bibby Tate, whose ancestors had been enslaved, Dixon cowrote Colorful Louisiana Cuisine in Black and White, available from Pelican. This work includes more than six hundred recipes, attempting to capture and celebrate the unique cuisines of Louisiana and the cultures from which they derived. New Orleans Showcase describes this book as “meshing” the traditional and the new ways of Southern life and cooking, making it “useful as well as entertaining.”
