VERY VIRGINIA: Culinary Traditions With a Twist | Junior League of Hampton Roads | 1996 ©1995
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.
VERY VIRGINIA: Culinary Traditions With a Twist is a great example of a "community cookbook.” Often published for women by women, community cookbooks provide the reader a snapshot of unexpected insights into aspects of American culture, food and cultural norms at a given time in history and details not documented elsewhere. Some see community cookbooks as unofficial records of the past, and for cookbook collectors and culinary scholars, their historical value far outweighs the recipes inside.
