The High Museum of Art Recipe Collection

community cookbookHIGH-MUSUEMToday’s Community Cookbook: The High Museum of Art Recipe Collection (Copyright 1981 by The High Museum of Art; Printed by Williams Printing Company, Atlanta, GA)

Much like painting and sculpting, cooking is an art form, a mastery of different flavors and textures. The collectors who assembled The High Museum of Art Recipe Collection saw this connection between food and art and used it as a way to fund a more artful Atlanta by building a new museum. In this book you’ll find galleries of recipes—from delicious portrayals of puddings and soufflés to even more Southern-inspired works, such as barbecue shrimp and cheese straws—all true masterpieces in their own right.

Don’t forget to send us a photo of your favorite community cookbook for a chance to win a collection of vintage cookbooks!

    Wish I knew the recipe for the incredible cake of the day (8/10/16) in the High Museum restaurant. It was like a marble cake in some ways with an intense chocolate frosting. It was the Chef’s special.

    I have really enjoyed this series and have ordered several of them for my collection. I submitted this cookbook earlier for consideration. CANDLELIGHT AND WISTERIA, published by a committee of Lee-Scott Academy parents in 1996, has so many fabulous recipes. It would be a great choice for this series.
