Charity League of Charlotte Cookbook

In 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.
