OUT OF OUR LEAGUE | Junior League of Greensboro, North Carolina | 1993 ©1978
OUT OF OUR LEAGUE: The Junior League of Greensboro, North Carolina is a regional cookbook with recipes from Greensboro hostesses and Junior League members. It has been named a Southern Living Hall of Fame winner.
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. They give the reader a snapshot of historical details not documented elsewhere and have become unofficial records of the past. For some cookbook collectors and culinary scholars, their historical value far outweighs the recipes inside.
Most community cookbooks were charity or community fundraisers. This book was created as a long-term fundraiser for the The Junior League of Greensboro to fund its community projects.
The 430-page comb-bound cookbook is in good condition for its age with no tears or bent corners. It is a copy from the 1993 seventh printing of the book. It measures 9 ¼” by 6 ½” and has the Southern Living Hall of Fame sticker on the front cover.

We strive to provide you the best in antique, collectibles and vintage items and 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.
