Blowing Rock Fire releases cookbook
If you've ever eaten at one of the Blowing Rock Fire & Rescue's potluck dinners, you know that these folks and their families know a little something about good food.
Now, the BRF&D is sharing some of its best-loved recipes in a book titled "Hometown Harvest Recipes."
"Hometown Harvest Recipes" contains more than 150 pages worth of easy-to-follow recipes and helpful hints on how to turn any meal into a banquet. The cookbook also features an interesting and informative history of the Blowing Rock Fire Department, from its beginning in the early 1920s, to its merger with the Blowing Rock Rescue Squad in 2008, to its construction of BRF&D Fire Station No. 2 on U.S. 221 in 2009.
In addition to the tried and true family recipes found in this new cookbook, Hometown Harvest Recipes also includes a section for children wanting to learn how to make classic kids' fare, such as ants on a log, breakfast pizza and butterscotch haystacks.
Proceeds from the sale of the new cookbook will support the Blowing Rock Fire & Rescue Auxiliary and their ongoing projects.
"Hometown Harvest Recipes" is available through the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce and through the Blowing Rock Fire & Rescue Auxiliary. Copies are $10 apiece. To order through mail, add $2 for shipping and handling and mail a check to: Blowing Rock Fire & Rescue Auxiliary, PO Box 1252, Blowing Rock, NC 28605.
