City of Valdosta Press Release:
A commemorative cookbook is one of many ways Valdostans may get involved in the city’s sesquicentennial celebration. “Still Cookin’ After 150 Years” is no ordinary cookbook, with eight non-traditional categories that reflect our community’s tastes and traditions, as well as interesting information and photographs throughout the publication.
Citizens may choose to be a part of this sesquicentennial keepsake by submitting recipes for the following categories:
· Church Night Suppers/Grandma’s Favorites
· Peaches, Pecans and Peanuts
· BBQ & Tailgating
· Quick and Easy Entrees
· Kid’s Corner
· For Your Future: Healthy and Good for You
Two additional categories—Local Restaurant Favorites and Turn-of-the-Century Recipes—will also be a part of this commemorative collection.
Citizens who would like to contribute may do so through the cookbook link, which may be found by clicking on the red cake icon at www.valdostacity.com or by going directly to www.typensave.com. To log in and enter recipes, use the group login name vldga with the password m89zp and a contributor’s name. Submissions may also be emailed to Lu Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or sent to: Lu Williams, P.O. Box 1963, Valdosta, GA 31603-1963. The deadline for entry submissions has been extended to Friday, Dec. 18, 2009.
Preorders for “Still Cookin’ After 150 Years” will be taken at the Winterfest/Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 5 or at the Downtown ‘DostaFest sesquicentennial kickoff event on Friday, Jan. 15, both in Downtown Valdosta. The cost of the cookbook will be $20 per copy.
