Carson Gulley Cookbook Collection

Carson Gulley was the head chef at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) Housing Division's Food Service from 1927-1954. Gulley introduced a number of dishes that have been indelibly imprinted in the taste memories of generations of UW-Madison students, notably his fudge-bottom pie. Gulley was the first person of color to have a campus building named after him; the Carson Gulley Commons, a dining hall, remodeled and reopened as Carson Gulley Center in 2013. Gulley was also a civil rights pioneer and one of the first African-American chefs to host television and radio cooking programs. The Carson Gulley Cookbook Collection from UW-Madison Digital Collections is based on Gulley's cookbook, Seasoning Secrets and Favorite Recipes of Carson Gulley and also on printed pamphlets of Gulley's recipes that were distributed to attendees of his TV and radio cooking shows. The fudge-bottom pie recipe can be found on page 106 in the "Desserts" chapter.
