PRLog (Press Release) – Sep 26, 2010 – CANTON, Ga. – The Canyon Cookers, one of three cooking clubs at Soleil Laurel Canyon, a resort-inspired active adult community in Canton, Ga. released a cookbook today that includes more than 460 recipes. The cookbook, dedicated to Soleil resident and Canyon Cookers founder Eber Lester, was published by Morris Press Cookbooks.
“We are extremely excited about the outcome of the book,” said Earlene Nesselrote, a member of the cooking club who came up with the idea. ”It has been so well received; we are already planning a second volume.”
Recipes include the name of the resident that provided it as well as any other special features. each one is marked for certain diets with categories, such as hearth healthy, quick and easy, Kosher, diabetic and vegetarian to name a few. they are also broken down into appetizers and beverages, soups and salads, vegetables and side dishes, main dishes, breads and rolls, desserts, cookies and candy as well as a special category, called this and that.
Dishes in the cookbook are varied and include items such as Smoked Salmon Sliders, Chilled Strawberry Gazpacho, Broccoli Cheese Casserole, Mama’s Turkey and Oyster Gumbo and Heath Candy Cake.
Nesselrote said she came up with the idea for the cookbook after visiting Medical Associates of North Georgia. while in the waiting room, a cookbook produced by the medical group was on sale for $10.
“I saw that and thought, why can’t we do that? I asked fellow Canyon Cookers Clara Jenkins and Carol Gentle to help and off we went,” Nesselrote said.
The book, which was pre-sold to residents, has already netted $2,800 for the Canyon Cookers. The cooking club plans to use some of the funds to install a commercial dishwasher in the community’s gourmet teaching kitchen. currently, only 100 copies remain and they are expected to sell quickly. If interested in purchasing a copy for $13.50 plus $1.50 shipping and handling per book, contact Nesselrote at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Canyon Cookers are just one of many clubs and groups at the master-planned, 55-plus community that sits on an expansive, 330-acre property. With a 28,000 square-foot clubhouse, Soleil is far from the traditional active adult community. On-site activities include a billiards parlor, gourmet teaching kitchen, library, card-playing rooms, media room, fitness center and arts and crafts studio complete with kilns.
