Taste of Georgiaby Newnan Junior Service League Inc (Manufactured by)
In 1977, the members of the Newnan Junior Service League decided to put together a collection of triple-tested recipes and cooking tips to support their various philanthropies. Twenty-two years and an astounding 260,000 copies later, A Taste of Georgia has become an award-winning classic, full of tried-and-true southern recipes and unique gourmet dishes. A Taste of Georgia has been awarded membership in the Southern Living Hall of Fame and the McIlhenny Tabasco Community Cookbook Awards Hall of Fame. Since 1977, sales of A Taste of Georgia and its 1994 companion volume, Another Serving, have raised approximately one million dollars in support of Newnan Junior Service League projects. These include college tuition scholarships for local students, cultural programs for the community, a local shelter for battered women and children, Habitat for Humanity, and the Newnan chapter of the Boys and Girls Clubs, Inc. We appreciate your support of Georgia's "best loved" cookbooks and hope this edition will quickly become your favorite cooking guide. So look inside and savor A Taste of Georgia!

I have been making recipes from this cookbook for over 30 years and call many of the women whose recipes are included my friends. Jam Thumprints and Jane's Chocolate Chip Cookies are still my 21-year old son's favorites. Pumpkin Bread, Pralines and easy Chocolate Fudge have been Christmas gifts for family and friends for decades. And nothing says home to me like crusty, savory Dixie Cornbread! Even after attending culinary school and working as a professional chef and caterer, I still turn to the appetizers in Taste of Georgia for easy, economical crowd-pleasers. This is my all-time favorite cookbook!
This cook book is the 'Bible' for our family's Southern cooking. Every new bride in the family gets one.
