There is a bit of underlying humor and irony here. By all reports, FDR hated Mrs. Nesbitt's cooking and much preferred that of his cook at Warm Springs, Daisy Bonner.
Daisy was preparing FDR's last meal, his favorite souffle, when he was fatally stricken with a brain hemorrhage on April 12, 1945. The note that Daisy wrote on the wall of the Little White House that fateful day can still be seen there.
FDR's favorite meal was Brunwick Stew, as prepared by Daisy. It was be served to him at as a surprise at the planned barbeque/minstrel show he never attended the afternoon of his death.
Here's the recipe:
3 to 3-1/2 pounds stewing chicken (cut into 8-10 pieces)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons bacon fat
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 green onions, diced
3 cups small potatoes, diced
3 large tomatoes, peeled and diced
1-1/2 cups Lima or butter beans, fresh or frozen
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup okra, diced
1/2 cup sherry
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons butter
We found this picture of Daisy, who died in 1958, in a rare African-American oriented magazine, Sepia (now at the FDRL).
