THE STENCILED STRAWBERRY Cookbook | Junior League of Albany New York 1991 ©1985
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.
Community cookbooks* were often published for women by women and provide unexpected insights into aspects of American culture and public history at a given time in history-from food to cultural norms. The cookbooks were normally fundraisers to support a group's community projects.
Initial proceeds from this cookbook were used to support projects of The Junior League of Albany. The league was founded in 1901 by an 18-year-old New York City college student named Mary Harriman. Since its founding, the emphasis of the group's projects has been learning. The cookbook is out-of-print and no longer sold by the league.
