Waynesboro recipes sought for cookbook

August 16, 2007|By JENNIFER FITCH

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Historical Society is looking for recipes to be printed in its second cookbook.

The cookbook will be produced in the same style and as a companion to the historical society's previous cookbook, "Culinary Traditions: A Taste of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania."

In addition to recipes, each cookbook will contain historical photos, cooking tips and special pages of local interest, and will be ready in time for Christmas.

"With a focus on Waynesboro, the cookbook will be a treasury of local and regional culinary favorites, reflecting the unique flavor of the Antietam region," David McJonathan, historical society president, said in a press release.


Recipe contributors do not have to be members of the historical society.

Recipes are needed in all categories whether they're heirloom recipes or family favorites. Each contributor can send up to five recipes, and the contributor's name will appear by the recipes. Brief anecdotes about the recipe's origin or family traditions are welcome.

Recipes can be e-mailed to or mailed to Waynesboro Historical Society, 138 W. Main St., Waynesboro, PA 17268, ATTN: Joyce Thompson.

Include your name, town and telephone number so that you can be reached if there are questions. Recipes must be sent by Saturday, Sept. 1, to meet the publisher's deadline.

Proceeds benefit the Waynesboro Historical Society.
