COMING IN JANUARY: VOLUME II OF TASTES AND TREASURES, A STORYTELLING COOKBOOK OF HISTORIC ARIZONA

This new cookbook is a "labor of love" from Historical League members. It highlights wonderful buildings that house restaurants and hotels that are 50+ years old and contains recipes which many of us have enjoyed while traveling around Arizona. 

Besides a cookbook, it’s a travelogue and treasure trove of Arizona stories. You can stroll through these historic establishments via photographs and descriptions written by Lisa Schnebly Heidinger.
