Book of the Week #7

Flavors from Far and Near: A Second Helping: A Collection of Recipes from the Friends of the Rollinsford Public Library. (2007?)

This cookbook was created as a fundraiser for the Rollinsford Public Library and it contains recipes from community members as well as from authors (like Tomie dePaola), and Governors, and Senators, and Presidents. It even includes a recipe (for linguine with sun-dried tomatoes) from a Senator who became President. Among the recipes are New England classics like Whoopie Pies and Grapenut Custard.

In 2003 Rollinsford, New Hampshire did not have a library. A 10-year-old boy named RJ decided this needed to change. This book includes the story of how he brought the community together to create the Rollinsford Public Library (from whom you can purchase this book).
