March Brown Bag – Creating Your Family Cookbook

“Cooking Up Memories: Creating Your Family Cookbook”
Creating a heritage family cookbook is the theme of March’s “Brown Bag/Local Lore” program on March 7.
In this presentation, genealogist and librarian EvaAnne Johnson will share how she compiled her local family’s cherished recipes into a family cookbook, and share tips for how you can do the same. Learn about preserving family recipes, collaborating with relatives, discovering your culinary heritage, and the process of turning those recipes into a personalized family cookbook, ensuring that your treasured culinary memories endure for generations to come.
This program is part of “Brown Bag Lunch Series,” a free lecture series offered in collaboration by the Ellwood House Museum and DeKalb County History Center, and will begin at 12 p.m. on Thursday, March 7 at the Ellwood House Visitors Center, 420 Linden Place, DeKalb.
Brown Bag Lunch/Local Lore is funded in part by the Mary E. Stevens Concert and Lecture Fund. Parking is available onsite at the Ellwood House Museum. Learn more by visiting or by calling 815-895-5762.
