VERY VIRGINIA: Culinary Traditions With a Twist is a regional cookbook first published in 1995 by the Junior League of Hampton Roads.

Readers will find over 400 triple-tested recipes emphasizing fresh ingredients and food indigenous to Virginia, such as Crab Mousse, Shenandoah Apple Muffins, Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Sugar Coated Peanuts, and Grilled Breast of Duck, and many more.

The book includes seasonal menu suggestions with wine pairings, quick and easy favorites for cooks on a tight schedule, and a fun chapter entitled, Kids in the Kitchen for young cooks.

The 308-page plastic comb bound hard cover cookbook is in like new condition and appears to be unread. It is from the 3rd printing in 1996.

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.
