Last year, the Marietta Community House (MCH) Board of Directors was looking for a new project to help fund the maintenance of the Community House building, which is located at 264 West Market Street. Carol Shadle, a board member, suggested a cook book sale for the 2016 fundraiser. Under Carol’s direction, a committee of MCH members was formed to undertake the project.
The cookbook was started with ideas, and recipes were gathered from friends, from relatives, from former Marietta residents, and in memory of loved ones from Marietta. In total, two hundred and seventy five recipes were collected. The committee next chose colors, photos, and type for the publication of the cookbook. Recipes were proofread and put into categories ranging from appetizers to mouth-watering desserts. Finally, the completed 2016 Marietta Community House cookbook arrived from the publishers in April.
The Marietta Community House cookbook makes a wonderful gift for that special bride to be, birthday, special holiday, or as a Marietta keepsake. The price of the cookbook is $15. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the cookbook, please call Vivian Carroll at 426-1270. Happy cooking!
