Veteran’s Day Tasting Event on Saturday, November 11th – also order your cookbooks here!
Preserving the Valley’s food history…one bite at a time! The Recipes of Youngstown group on Facebook, with over 9,000 members, is hosting a fall tasting event to honor our Armed Forces and to promote the group’s third cookbook.
Over 30 delicious family dishes are being prepared by bakers whose recipes are included in the new cookbook. A portion of the proceeds from the event and from sales of the new cookbook will be used to fund a newly established scholarship at the YSU Foundation to provide assistance to military veterans finishing their education. Admission is free, tasting tickets are six for $5.00, tickets are also available for raffle baskets.
Other activities include an Anything Apple contest and a fun photo booth where people can take a picture with a favorite chef, favorite food, Happy and Go Lucky, (aka Donald R. Allen and Ernie DiRenzo), Bill Lawson, Director of MVHS in an old fashioned costume from Youngstown’s history, a brave Veteran in uniform, or they can even don a chefs hat and some other fun accessories. Photo boot donations will go directly to the Scholarship fund.
Free adjacent parking is available in the west side lot.
