The John Marshall Barber Shop opened its doors on the day
before Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, and has been in business continuously
ever since. Located in Richmond near Virginia’s State Capitol, many governors,
senators, and other dignitaries have gathered there over the years to get a
trim, a shave, or a shoeshine.
While having their hair cut, or waiting their turn, they
sometimes talk about food, especially around lunchtime. Often their favorite
dishes are made from family recipes. That’s how the idea for this cookbook came
to be. Whether they were contributed by former Governor and Senator George
Allen, former Governor Bailies or Holton, current Senator Jim Webb, or from
other perhaps lesser known patrons, but patrons possessing palates no less
discriminating, this cook book is chock full of favorite family recipes - more
than a hundred of them.
According to one barber, many have been passed down for
generations, and taste buds haven’t changed. So the recipes in this book have
stood the test of time.
That’s the best reason we can think of at the moment for you
to get your own copy, today, right now, while supplies last.
