Rural Heritage Museum to celebrate cookbooks

July 06, 2007

Who does not covet another cookbook? Especially a cookbook that has a local or regional flavor.

On July 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of Key Ingredients - America by Food, the Washington County Homemakers, under the chairmanship of Helen Arnold, will host Cookbooks, Coffee and Conversation - a daylong celebration of local cookbooks and authors.

This is one of the events planned at the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum, off Sharpsburg Pike, to augment this food exhibit. Key Ingredients comes to the museum from the Smithsonian Institution under the auspices of the Maryland Humanities Council with assistance from the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Homemakers have planned special refreshments in the German tradition for this event. Local organizations and authors who have published cookbooks are invited to come and sell their books during the day. They should contact the museum (240-313-2839) or Dorry Norris (240-420-5082) before Monday, July 9, to reserve space. Cookbook fanciers will also enjoy the display of antique cookbooks. "Gramma's Apron," a display of local aprons and their history will also be on view.
