Recipes wanted for library cookbook

The Friends of the Washington County-Jonesborough Library will publish a cookbook this year to benefit the library.

It will reflect what is unique about Washington County and Jonesborough as well as the entities’ place in Tennessee history as the oldest county and town. The cookbook will also acknowledge Jonesborough’s prominence in the storytelling community. 

Creators of the cookbook plan on collecting not only recipes, but the stories about the recipes, too.

Anyone associated with Washington County and/or Jonesborough can submit recipes and the stories behind them.

Local bed and breakfasts and locally-owned restaurants — both current and past — and storytellers who entertain in Washington County and Jonesborough are also encouraged to submit their recipes.

Recipes can be submitted by emailing or, in the case of type-written or printed submissions, to the libraries in Jonesborough or Gray. 

All submissions must include the name and address of the contributor. Deadline for submissions is March 1. The authorship of all entries will be fully credited; addresses of contributors will not be published. 

Photographs, if submitted, will also be considered for publication.
