Our next cookbook: Short and sweet, with a pinch of mystery

Special thanks go out to the Westlake Historical Society for letting us digitize a short cookbook from their collections called Good Recipes That Are Different, which was published by the Dover Junior High School for the eighth grade. While it only has 34 recipes, this cookbook definitely captures a point in Westlake's culinary history. There's just one problem: what point in Westlake's history does it capture? There is no publication date anywhere on the cookbook. Dover became Westlake in 1940, so it would make sense that these recipes are older than that year.

If you know anything about this cookbook, please let us know! You can use the contact form on this site. It doesn't matter which category you choose on that page. We would love to know when it was published.
