"Recipes of Youngstown" will benefit the old mill

Published: Wed, April 30, 2014 @ 4:56 a.m.


Staff report


“Recipes of Youngstown” contains more than 500 recipes submitted by local or formerly local cooks who created a Facebook page to share recipes and stories.

The book is now available for advance orders. The hardcover edition contains old favorites and new creations. All the profits from the sale of the cookbook will benefit Lanterman’s Mill in Mill Creek Park.

The tone of the book is casual and homespun because of the many stories that accompany the recipes. A special surprise is that one of the most coveted recipes in the history of Youngstown is contained in the book. You’ll have to buy one to find out what it is.

The book is available through www.millcreekmetroparks.org/visit/publications/recipes-of-youngstown-cookbook/. It also can be ordered at the Mill Creek MetroParks Farm, 7574 Columbiana-Canfield Road, Canfield, or by phone at 330-702-3000.

The address to mail in an order is Mill Creek MetroParks, P.O. Box 596, Canfield, OH 44406. If paying by check, write “Recipes of Youngstown” cookbook in the memo line.

The price is $19.50 if picking up at the farm, or $25 if it’s mailed to you. Tax and shipping are included in the mail-in price.

A Taste of Tradition is planned from noon to 4 p.m. May 18 at Lanterman’s Mill. Several of the cookbook contributors will be there to offer samples of recipes from the book.

They will sell tickets for the samples at $5 for six tickets, and all the proceeds go to the mill. Featured will be door prizes and gift baskets for which tickets will be sold, as well as a painting of the mill done by a local artist.

Ordered over a month ago, check was cashed, got a receipt mailed to me... where's this book at?? Paid for postage and gave a donation. Don't mess this effort up now and give yourselves a bad name.....GET your books mailed out.

If you were paying attention to our facebook page, you would have seen the endless postings and updates about the arrival of the book. We expect the books to arrive at the park office on or about May 9th and then they will be sorted for those who are picking up in person and those who need them shipped out to them. I can assure you that you will receive your book. Just a shame you had to be nasty in your comment rather than ask your question nicely on the Recipes of Youngstown facebook page where we would have graciously answered your question and eased your doubts. Please feel free to join Recipes of Youngtown if you have not yet. Your impatience will be well rewarded once you have your book in hand.

Just to add another point.....the book you ordered was a PREORDER so we could get an idea of how many to order from the publishers. So when you PREORDERED your book, it was still being finalized with the publisher.. Your welcome.
