From Publishers Weekly

The Junior League fetes its 100th anniversary with a collection of recipes from its 295 local chapters around the country. This celebratory volume also highlights "Recipes for a Better Community," examples of how different chapters have used proceeds from their cookbook sales to help improve their communities (e.g., renovating libraries, building parks), which is the overall mission of the Junior League. The recipes are arranged by region and typeANortheast and Mid-Atlantic Appetizers, Appalachian/Piedmont Beverages, Northern Plains and Canada Meats and Game and so forth. While there is a heavy reliance on rich foods like mayonnaise, cheese and butter, there are healthy alternatives to be found. As well, it's comforting to see that chefs are not afraid to include ingredients such as bottled lemon juice, cake mix, and frozen concentrates. The sophisticated gourmet will be especially delighted with recipes for Mixed Greens and Pear Salad with Walnut Vinaigrette, a sparkling palate awakener; Curried Butternut Squash Soup, an elegant first course; and Lemon Thyme Swordfish, an entr?e that is easy enough for everyday, but perfect for entertaining. The name alone will attract cooks looking for comforting homestyle recipes. (Nov.)

I bought this a year ago for my wife for her birthday on the recommendation of a friend. It has proven to be one of the hest gifts I've given her in the 27 years we've been together.
The Junior Leagues individual chapters have published about a zillion individual chapter versions of their cookbook. This represents a sort of "best of" version.
It's excellent for several reasons:
--It includes recopies from all regions of the country, giving it both a national as well as a regional flair.
--It contains more than four hundred recipes, ranging from classic dishes to contemporary fare that have never before been gathered into one volume.
--It includes many original essays on regional cooking and foodways which are both informative and entertaining.
--It provides dozens of sample menus that make planning and organizing meals a breeze.
--It's printed on sturdy, water resistant stock in a spiral binding making it a good choice for family cooking where the kid's are "helping" you with the meal.
Over the past year my wife has used this more than all her other cookbooks combined. She's enjoyed using it immensely--and I've enjoyed the fruits of her labor immensely.
For down home family cooking success, this is as good as it gets!

Once Again, a masterpiece has been created! For years, the best cookbooks have come from the Junior Leagues - so, what could be better than the "best of the best?" This is the second of AJLI's compilation cookbooks, hitting a home run a couple of years ago with the Centennial Cookbook and doing it again with this one - the Celebration Cookbook. They haven't been around for 100 years for nothin'!

This is a book of hidden teasures, recipes not found on line or in other cookbooks. I had the book years ago and lost it, but kept looking for certain recipes on line. No luck. Finally bought it again. Texas Caviar on page 36 has nothing to do with caviar. I make it and give it as gifts. It's delicious and wildly popular. The seafood section takes you to the Gulf Coast and the veggie section is just heaven. It is a world of lovely food that evokes memories of gentler days and ways that are timeless in their appeal. I must think it's great to buy it twice.

This cookbook has rapidly become my new favorite! Every recipe I've tried has been outstanding. I highly recommend it.
Also included are descriptions of community programs sponsored by various local Junior Leagues. Funds from cookbook sales go toward supporting these important efforts.

This is my all-time favorite cookbook - the one I always reach for first. I have made numerous recipes from this book especially for entertaining and am always asked for the recipe. You won't be disappointed if you like delicious food. I even give the book as gifts and it is very much appreciated.
