Preserving great recipes before they're lost.

Just a few of the 50 local cookbooks that went into making
the Best of the Best from Louisiana cookbook.
Some are now out of print.

In each state we visited in the 1990s, we searched hard to find and preserve those little recipe gems that were in danger of being lost forever. Often these are the kind of recipes that you'd find tucked away in a modest church cookbook published in a small community.
Junior League cookbooks were also a valuable contributor to the state cookbook series because they are developed by local members and reflect the recipes of their unique city and community.
By gleaning the best recipes and compiling them into a single cookbook, we worked to fulfill our mission: "Preserving America's Food Heritage."
