Tastes & Treasures cookbook Volume II

This is an opportunity to contribute content to new storytelling cookbook from the Historical League. The Historical League has embarked on an exciting endeavor to launch a second storytelling cookbook, Tastes & Treasures Volume II. As in the first Tastes & Treasures, it will showcase exceptional restaurants located in historic Arizona buildings. Featuring chef-inspired recipes, the cookbook will also include photos and share the histories of these properties. Also featured will be recipes and food memories from Historymakers including Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Jim Bruner, Ed Beauvais and Erma Bombeck to name a few. The warm Western hospitality and delicious cuisine we appreciate and celebrate will be reflected in this cookbook. A new section features Tribute pages with an opportunity for you to honor a loved one with a recipe, food memory, photograph and short biography. For more information, click here. Leave a Legacy that will continue to keep on giving for years to come.
