New Bern Cooks 300 Years of Good Food

I was asked if I would be willing to work with Merci Clinic and the New Bern 300th Anniversary Committee to produce a cookbook. ALL proceeds go to Merci Clinic.

We get asked every day for donations and frankly we just can't do it all but in this case I was honored to help.

In fact all the images we used in this cookbook are available at Carolina Creations as prints. Click here to see those.

You can purchase the cookbook online by clicking here. It's $15 plus shipping.

New Bern Cooks! offers a variety of recipes, notes and helpful hints. There are even a few recipes from Switzerland! Decendants of the city's founder, Baron Christophe de Graffenreid, were gracious enough to send recipes.

Of course, a book written in Eastern Carolina must have many traditional favorites. Everything from syllabub to cornbread and delicious seaford recipes are included.

To retain historical perspective, recipes ere also collected from the Tryon Palace library.

The cookbooks are available at Carolina Creations.

    Is this cookbook available for sale at Carolina Creations and other businesses downtown? Can't wait to purchase one for my Mom for Mother's Day.... and grab one for me too!
