A primary focus of the Craft Guild has always been to give back to the Nevada County community. Several years ago, guild members contacted celebrities and local officials to see if they would contribute a favorite recipe for a cookbook. The first cookbook was so successful that the guild decided to do a second edition with all new recipes. The book you see above was published in 2006 and after an initial flurry of sales, remaining copies were somewhat forgotten. But we had a friend in the Flour Garden Bakery at 999 Sutton Way, Grass Valley (Brunswick Shopping Area). They bought a big supply of our cookbooks from us several years ago and we donated the proceeds to Women of Worth. The Flour Garden still has a few copies which are for sale again this holiday season. Stop by and pick up a copy of Nevada County History
What's inside? Buffalo Wings contributed by E. Christine Dabis, the former Nevada County Tax Collector, Governor Schwarzenegger's Oven Pancake recipe, Turtle Brownies by Mickey Mouse and Carrot Ginger Soup contributed by Laura Bush, courtesy of Chef David Garrido. A favorite of mine is "Fall to Your Knees, Mac and Cheese"! Your grandkids will love you for making this dish.
