cookbookIn May, 1999, Mayor Pat McCrory, designated the Charity League’s Cookbook, Carolina Sunshine, Then & Now as “The Official Cookbook of Charlotte.” Today, our bright collection of long-remembered and refreshing new recipes will tempt you to experience the warm hospitality of Carolina cooks. Extras in addition to recipes include an extensive helpful hints section with references on measurements and substitutions, an herb and spice chart, a comprehensive glossary on cooking and food terms, napkin folding and buffet details. We’re proud that three recipes from our book were featured in Southern Living’s America’s Best Recipes 1999, Hometown Collection; two others shared the spotlight in America’s Best Recipes 2000 Hometown Collection, and one was featured in the Southern Living Best Recipes 2002. Four recipes are featured in the 2006 edition of BEST of the BEST from North Carolina Cookbook. 

Copies of our cookbook are available through major publishers and established retailers, with proceeds benefiting children in the Charlotte area.
