Long before Pinterest, there was the community cookbook, an authentic collection of shared recipes that told the story of a people and a place. We cooked from dozens of our dog-eared favorites to unearth vintage recipes for today's home cook.
Compiled by The Junior League of Greensboro, this collection of entertaining ideas and recipes were created by some of North Carolina’s leading hostesses (the Martha Stewarts of their time!), who knew how to plan a party with ease and grace. In it you’ll find guest-friendly food gifts, tips galore that still apply to today’s cook, and menu ideas for everything from brunch and tailgating to “Dinner for the Boss.” Don’t miss the last section on keeping the kids busy where you’ll learn how to make homemade bubbles, finger paint, and my childhood favorite—Silly Putty.
