Good Things to Eat as Suggested by Rufus

Good Things to Eat as Suggested by Rufus by Rufus Estes
By: (b. 1857)

Rufus Estes was born a slave in 1857 in Tennessee, and experienced first hand the turmoil of the Civil War. He began working in a Nashville restaurant at the age of 16, and in 1883 took up employment as a Pullman cook.

There he served succulent fare for the rich and famous at the turn of the 20th century.
