TEA-TIME AT THE MASTERS | Junior League of Augusta, Georgia 1989 ©1977
TEA-TIME AT THE MASTERS: A Collection of Recipes is a popular regional cookbook published in 1977 by the Junior League of Augusta Georgia. Submissions include recipes from well-known golf clubs and resorts--Augusta, Royal and Ancient St. Andrews, Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, The Homestead, Broadmoor Hotel, and Firestone, popular chefs, and wives of Masters Tournament players. There is even a pastry recipe from Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
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 created as a charity or community fundraiser. This book was a long-term fundraiser for the Junior League of Augusta Georgia to support their projects.
The 294-page comb-bound cookbook is in near mint condition. It measures 9" high by 6" wide without the plastic comb. This is a copy is the tenth printing in 1989.
