THRU THE GRAPEVINE: Finger Lakes Region | Junior League of Greater Elmira-Corning 1993 ©1983
THRU THE GRAPEVINE: Finger Lakes Region Cookbook is a popular regional cookbook that includes recipes from members of the Junior League of Greater Elmira - Corning, New York. It has been named a Southern Living Hall of Fame winner.
There are twelve chapters including a wine chapter that describes the history and wine varietals of New York State's Finger Lakes region and a map that shows forty-seven of the region's wineries. The section follows with food menus paired with suggested wines. Beautiful illustrations of the region's landmarks are throughout the book.
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 Greater Elmira - Corning to support their projects.
The 354-page comb-bound cookbook contains 635 recipes. It is in near mint condition. The Southern Living Hall of Fame sticker is on the front. The cookbook's copyright is 1983--this is a copy is the sixth printing in 1993.
