During the Coronavirus CONVID-19 and self-quarantine, we have had the opportunity to try new recipes, and perhaps now we may have a few new favorite meals. The perfect way to share some of your new and old family favorite recipes is through a community cookbook. It is a great way to preserve recipes, share cultures, and other alternative dietary lifestyles while raising money for the Winterville Center for Community and Culture.  

We would like to have the cookbook available for gift-giving by November 16th, if not sooner.  What we need now are five (5) of your favorite recipes in any of the following categories:

Appetizers e.g. holiday, party, picnic, luncheon, etc.
Beverages e.g. non-alcoholic, juices, nutritional, etc.
Bread & Rolls e.g. gluten-free, vegan, tortillas, bagels, biscuits, muffins, etc.
Breakfasts e.g. cereals, protein, muffins, casseroles, etc.
Condiments & Sauces e.g. dips, gravies, soy-based, dressings, jams & jellies, etc.
Desserts, Cookies, & Candy e.g. snacks, pies, cakes, holiday, etc.
Fruit e.g. fresh, cooked, salads, curd mousse, fruit fluffs, etc.
Grains e.g. Cooked or cold, Bread, Rolls, Quick Bread, etc.

It would be helpful for you to provide a brief (3-4 sentence) story about your recipe, such as, whether it is a traditional dish served only at holiday times, how it came down through your family, or why you like the recipe, etc.

What is the Winterville Center?

The Winterville Center for Community and Culture is a regional enrichment center that serves adults of all ages. Our purpose is to promote the social, cultural, mental and physical well being of the adult citizens of Winterville and the surrounding communities.  Daytime and evening classes and activities abound. We socialize, exercise, create art, play games, dance, and we eat together.  

Visit our unique honor system Coffee House on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Then, on the first Thursday of every month, we have a "First Thursday Potluck Luncheon & Lecture" with special guest speakers, entertainment or a demonstration.  

Our Winterville Arts Council curates the art gallery throughout the Center.  See works of art by masters, novices, and even by students of the Winterville Elementary School. They include all kinds of art media including, but not limited to paints, chalk, pencils, pottery, poetry, wood, and so much more. Don't miss the Art Council's quarterly art receptions.
