We know, we know. You’re not surprised to learn members of the Junior League dish on everything. But it’s not what you think. League members have poured their hearts, souls and vast knowledge of Southern cooking into one fabulous book.

For some of the best recipes Northwest Arkansas has to offer, foodies know to head to the Junior League for its exclusive cookbook, Add Another Place Setting. Aside from all the great cooking you’ll do in your own kitchen, the Junior League cookbook makes a wonderful gift for any occasion.

Published in 2008, recipes include those of League members as well as local socialites and do-gooders that make Northwest Arkansas a great place to live. Recipes from the likes of Pat Walker, Johnelle Hunt, Gen Broyles and the late Helen R. Walton and Bernice Jones are just a few of the many worthy of a mention. In fact, throughout the cookbook there are interesting tidbits about well-known families like the Waltons and all the distinct attributes that make our Northwest Arkansas communities unique.

You’ll find the Junior League cookbook committee selling the cookbook at various fairs and events around Northwest Arkansas. Not to mention a few local retailers like So Inviting and Richard’s Meat Market in Fayetteville sell the book for $26.95.  All the proceeds from cookbook sales assist the League in its mission to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve its community through the training of volunteers. Proceeds also benefit the League’s work to end domestic violence and hunger in Northwest Arkansas

Add Another Place Setting features nearly 200 pages of great recipes and beautiful pictures, plus a forward by local philanthropist and former Junior League of Northwest Arkansas president Susan Fountain Hui. You’ll also find a metric conversion chart and basic substitutions list, which are very helpful.

Whether you want a delicious menu to plan for tailgating at a Razorback game, book club or brunch with friends – this cookbook has it all. A few recipes this year’s Cookbook Vice Chair Lisa Morris couldn’t help but mention are the cinnamon pecans, oatmeal crisps and baked spaghetti. Your friends will be begging for the secret to your delectable cooking. 

So get out your elastic-waist pants. This delightful cookbook is going to make you hungry.
