PARTY POTPOURRI: Parties & Menus Created by the Junior League of Memphis is a regional cookbook published in 1971.  The cookbook has been named a Southern Living Hall of Fame winner.

Now out of print, PARTY POTPOURRI is a coveted and cherished cookbook in kitchens not just in Memphis, but across the South. The cookbook is a fabulous entertainment guide with over 500 recipes and became the go-to cookbook since it was first published in 1971. From a child's birthday party to formal dinners and receptions, it is filled with menus, invitation ideas, party themes and hostess hints. Many of the delectable hors d'oeuvre, entree and dessert recipes are designed to serve a large guest list, and all have been tested by League members.  

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 eighth 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.
