THE STENCILED STRAWBERRY COOKBOOK is a regional cookbook published by the Junior League of Albany, New York.

Originally published in 1985, the THE STENCILED STRAWBERRY COOKBOOK is a great example of a community cookbook,* and features over 1,100 recipes from gourmet meals from the Capital District's leading restaurants to family recipes passed through generations. Favorites include Polly's Chicken, Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney's Poulet Marengo, and Mrs. London's Eat Your Heart Out Chocolate Cake

The 318-page wire spiral hardcover cookbook measures 7 ¼” x 1 ¼” x 9 ¼” and is in great condition and does not show wear. Copy from the fourth printing in 1991. It would be a great addition to someone's cookbook collection--or used in the decor of a strawberry or red and black decorated kitchen.

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.
