A TASTE OF GEORGIA | Newnan Junior Service League 1994 ©1977
A TASTE OF GEORGIA is a regional cookbook published in 1977 by the Newnan Junior Service League of Newnan, Georgia.
An award-winning classic inducted to both the Southern Living and the McIlhenny Tabasco Community Cookbook Awards Halls of Fame, A TASTE OF GEORGIA is full of tried-and-true southern recipes and unique gourmet dishes.
It is a great example of a "community cookbook,' which were often published for women by women. These cookbooks provide unexpected insights into aspects of American culture and public history at a given time in history. For example, in this cookbook, contributors use their husband's first name and last name with the title Mrs. with their first name in parenthesis. For some cookbook collectors and culinary scholars, their historical value far outweighs the recipes inside.
The comb bound softcover cookbook is in good used condition. The softcover does have wear on the corners, especially near the comb as can be seen in the last image. The images were taken close-up so appear magnified. Copy from the fifteenth printing in February, 1994.
