Simplified Southern Cooking

Jim Rule, a semi-retired dealer of antique and rare books at Little Rock, has printed “Simplified Southern Cooking,” the antique cookbook written by his grandmother, Kate B. Stafford in 1936.

Rule discovered the book at a birthday celebration. In December 2012, Rule bought an auction item — a dinner hosted by Bitsy Davis at the Ashley-Alexander Plantation House at Scott, according to a news release. After Rule’s birthday celebration, Davis presented him with the cookbook that Rule didn’t know existed — “Simplified Southern Cooking,” published by Parke-Harper Co. of Little Rock in 1936.
