The best bet for adding recipes is to use the Submit a Recipe link. That way they will be available to everyone and integrated into the full collection.

We'd love to add the recipes to the collection.

Hi--I remember hearing back in the seventies that the purefoy hotel had either burned down or had closed for good, so sorry to be the bearer of bad news. good luck on recipes, they were the best.

Hi,
I am Eva Brunson Purefoy's great neice. She owned and operated the Purefoy Hotel which began it's modest beginning in 1916 in Monroeville, Alabama. It was so popular she decided to modernize and expand to a new location. On May 17, 1920 the Purefoy Hotel opened in Talladega, Alabama. Mrs. Purefoy sold the hotel to her brother-in-law (and my Grandfather), Edward T Hyde in 1944. He was the hotel's previous manager. In 1961 it was decided to close the 88-room hotel. By the time the doors closed for good, it had been successful for 47 years and had come a long way from the 15-room boarding house that began its life in Monroeville.
The first edition of The Purefoy Hotel Cook Book was printed in 1937, copyrighted in 1941, and revised 9 times and reprinted at least 16 times.
This famous cookbook has become a classic with tried and true recipes of old southern cooking. "Sister" Purefoy, as our family called her, died in 1975. She would be smiling if she could see how her recipes are being shared and appreciated here on this website. :)

Shrimp Cocktail

For the COCKTAIL SAUCE, try your favorite ketchup variety with added horseradish to taste. (usually a few teaspoons per cup of ketchup gives a sufficient kick)
