Keeper Jerry Jackson
Sales, Heating and Air Conditioning
Touristy Jerry Jackson selects his vacation destinations
based on whether they have culinary fame or television
appeal. As a fan of Andy Griffith, here he is with his
Aunt Bee cookbook and a mixing bowl at the ready. He
really does cook with the recipes.
"I love cookbooks," was his flash statement to qualify
as a serious cookbook Keeper. Like many, he never
gives one away. They, mostly, are for reading, in his
case, fun reading. He likes promotional cookbooks, i.e.
those having some connection with TV shows or that
reflect his family travels.
Evidence of Jackson's vacations is spread about his home.
The shell fish destination is the coast of Maine. And like
many cookbook Keepers, he returns home with at least
one cookbook of food memories. Bar Harbor, Maine,
as a fave trip may be repeated.
His Fave for fun reading, not cooking:
Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cookbook
by Ken Beck and Jim Clark
Recipes edited by Julia M. Pitkin
Rutledge Hill Press
The back cover puff says he will enjoy the "300 mouth-watering
recipes" from the Andy Griffith Show. The TV Mayberry was
set in western North Carolina, so we must assume this tome is
heavy with comfort food. Mentioned is a lot of "down-home
cooking." Cousin, that translates to fat food. Note: There are
numerous Mayberry cookbooks out there...so shop with
care to get the 2000 updated version of a popular fictional
place in rural Americana.
