WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Historical Society's new cookbook will be arriving soon, just in time for holiday gift-giving. "Culinary Traditions II: A Taste of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania," is a companion volume to the historical society's previous cookbook. In addition to 476 new recipes, each cookbook contains historical photos, cooking tips, and pages of local interest.
The book features recipes in several categories including appetizers, breads, soups, salads, entres, side dishes and desserts. "Some of the recipes are heirloom recipes, passed down through generations, and others are everyday family favorites," said David McJonathan, historical society president. Contributors' names appear by each recipe.
The cookbook's full-color hard cover features a vintage advertisement from the early 20th century. Inside divider pages feature 16 photos of historical interest from the Bob Ringer photo collection, housed at the historical society.
"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," McJonathan said. "The first volume of Culinary Traditions sold out years ago, but a limited number have been reprinted. The two volumes make a beautiful set."
