West Oakland Soul Food Cook Book

My friend and neighbor Katy Polony discovered this awesome mid 60’s community cookbook from here in West Oakland and kindly agreed to let me scan and distribute it.

Don’t miss the home remedies on the final two pages!

To read or print, click on the following link! It might take a little while as it is fairly hi-res.

  1. I found this same exact cookbook in our house here in the Berkeley Hills! What a treat it is to flip through this book and imagine how life was in West Oakland in the 60’s. I lived on Filbert and 18th for a short time in 2001.

    I’m astounded by the similarities between these recipes in this book and recipes in Charleston, SC, where I used to live. This little cookbook will be a nice reference to my future kitchen adventures!!!
