The yummy lemon bread at last night's meeting made me wonder about a TTo cookbook. The couple of folks I mentioned it to at the end of last night's mtg were positive. I emailed & Daniel replied with interest. He thinks we could use it as a fundraiser, & is wondering how to differentiate a TTo cookbook from all the others out there.
A 50-Mile Cookbook (or whatever radius we decide on) could be the theme. There are a zillion possibilities for veg, meat, poultry, fruit, breads, desserts. It would be a stimulating exercise to figure out what will be missing: coffee (but I think chicory grows around here), tea (herb teas can be included), chocolate (can carob trees grow here?), lemon bread (unless we have a greenhouse section). What fish from close by is safe and healthy to eat?
Daniel suggested I 'get the ball rolling' by offering a couple of my own recipes. I can offer yeast bread and vegetarian soup recipes.
Another way to make this cookbook special that would fit in with our goals is to offer it online only (no print edition), for a fee.
Daniel suggested starting a forum for this. I'm not up to taking that on by myself. Might anyone else be interested?
