BAY LEAVES: A Collection of Recipes, first published in 1975 by the Junior League of Panama City, Florida, has been inducted into the Southern Living Hall of Fame and received Wimmer Cookbooks' initial Hall of Fame award. The extensive cookbook, comprising over 300 pages and containing beloved recipes of the Florida Panhandle, is cherished by many cooks and collectors even after 45+ years.

The comb bound hardcover cookbook is in very good used condition. There is some light discoloring on some of the page edges--particularly on the top. No bent edges, tears and handwritten notes inside. The Southern Living Hall of Fame sticker is on the front. This is a copy from the eleventh printing in 1993. 

A must-have addition to your culinary library, this cookbook is an example of a community cookbook. Frequently published by a group of women as a fundraiser, these treasured cookbooks allow us to gain a unique insight into American culture, social norms, and the collective history during an era. Through the recipes, kitchen equipment used, household hints and headnotes, the reader is provided a valuable snapshot of historical details that might not be documented elsewhere. As a result, these cookbooks have become unofficial records of the past, often valued by collectors and culinary scholars more for their historical relevance, than the recipes inside.

We ask that when making your purchasing decision that you consider the photos as part of the item's description.

We do our best to provide you within the written description as much information, whether it’s the history, manufacturer, or condition, for each item we sell. 

We also recognize that a “picture is worth a thousand words” and ask that you view the photos we provide closely. Often, a photo can be more effective than a written description when determining if an item will meet your needs and satisfaction.
