Recipes so Good, They’re Only in Print. Nearly Four Decades of Delish!
The Junior League of Rochester has published two celebrated cookbooks: Applehood & Motherpie and For Goodness Taste. Our cookbooks hold hundreds of timeless dishes straight from our members’ recipe box, each meeting a rigorous vetting process for inclusion. From three-ingredient appetizers and make-ahead meals to show-stopping roasts and elegant entertaining, our recipes have been served in thousands of homes since 1981.
Heralded as “a cherished guide for anyone who cooks at home” by the Democrat & Chronicle, we are thrilled to reintroduce our cookbooks to a new generation of budding local foodies and their families.
