Overview

Since the 1950s, Junior Leagues have published collections of their favorite regional recipes to raise funds for local community development. Not only have these down-home, family-style cookbooks defined what we now call "comfort food," they have also raised tens of millions of dollars in charitable contributions and, collectively, sold in excess of 19 million copies. Now, to celebrate volunteerism and the Leagues' approaching 100th birthday, The Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. has collected into a single volume the very best, most popular, and soul-satisfying dishes from over 200 Junior League cookbooks. At one time Junior League cookbooks were better known for convenience-food recipes than for simple, elegant cuisine. No longer. In addition to such authentic American dishes (passed down from one generation to the next) as Josephinas, Country Captain, Shrimp Etouffee, Cornish Pasties, Geoduck Fritters, and Maryland Crabcakes, this collection also offers a healthy sampling of thoroughly modern easy-but-elegant recipes such as Walnut Stilton Torta, Chicken Breast in Phyllo, Bronzed Swordfish with Tropical Fruit Salsa, and Fresh Tomato Tart. And, of course, with families always on the go, literally hundreds of quick-and-easy recipes have been included for such dishes as Baked Potato Soup, Cheesy Italian Supper Pie, Cowboy Cookies, and Baked Steak. With over 750 recipes, The Junior League Centennial Cookbook is sure to become an instant classic and an essential addition to the cookbook shelf.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Since their initial publication in the 1950s, more than 18 million copies of local Junior League cookbooks have been sold, with proceeds supporting programs that further the League's mission of improving social conditions, promoting volunteerism and developing the potential of women. This volume, part of a 100-year celebration of the Junior League (founded in 1901), is the first collection of the "best" recipes culled from books 200 League chapters and includes sidebars about the organization's history. Recipes, credited to place but not date of origin, are conventionally organized (e.g., "Party Food, Appetizers & Beverages," "Vegetables & Side Dishes") and highlight regional American specialties, with none too demanding of the busy home cook. There are plenty of meat dishes (No Peekie Roast Beefie, Austin Fajitas, New Orleans Grillades), seafood recipes (Maine Seafood Bake) and poultry (Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya; Glazed Wild Duck). Other local dishes include Hearts of Palm Swamp Cabbage, Nashville One-Pan Fudge Cake and Chocolate Bourbon Pie. Literary Guild selection. (May)

    Never Fail Recipes

    These 750 recipes are called 'treasured' for a reason. I have more than 100 cookbooks--this is by far my favorite. I haven't tried a recipe yet that doesn't turn out yummy!
