THREE RIVERS COOKBOOK I: The Good Taste of Pittsburgh | Child Health Association ©1973
THREE RIVERS COOKBOOK I: The Good Taste of Pittsburgh is a popular regional cookbook with recipes from Pittsburgh restaurants and community members. Each recipe is accompanied by the name of its contributor and most recipes are heavily influenced by the traditions and customs of Pittsburgh’s multi-cultural and ethnic heritage. The cookbook 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 created as a charity or community fundraiser. This book was a fundraiser for the Child Health Association of Sewickley, Inc. and became so popular that since its original 1973 publish date, that two additional volumes—II and III have now been written.
The 250-page comb-bound cookbook is in good condition with no tears; however, the cover does show some browning, especially on the edges. The Southern Living Hall of Fame sticker is on the front.
