Abstract
Wormsloe Historic Site near Savannah, Georgia, is an impressively preserved Old South plantation. Wormsloe’s story is, among other things, a classic southern food tale, an account of innovation and tradition, of constant struggles between forces of change and continuity. Wormsloe residence, 1899, courtesy of the De Renne Family Papers, Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library/University of Georgia Libraries.
