Nice cookbook.

Very nice cookbook with local ingredients for a Northwest taste.
The recipes are from ‘real people’ so they are not too difficult to make.

Of My 176 Cookbooks this is the ” Most Worn-Out”

I like to consider myself a gourmet cook. I have been a great admirer of Julia Child and even took a short class from her when whe was in Seattle. However, I like to explore new horizons and most recently I got “hooked on” The Junior League Cookbooks. During my travels I always go to the hotel gift shop (or airport) to pick up the state Junior League Cookbook. I hit the “Jackpot” when I bought Oregon’s “Savor the Flavor.” My girl’s all own the cookbook and we write in each others book comments like Great, Fantastic…try this one. Today I am recommending it for my book study club. Close behind I would rate the two Seattle and San Francisco Junior League Cookbooks. As my husband said, “If you find one great recipe in a cookbook than it is worth the price of the book.” Well, this is worth gold!
