It has been a long time in the making, but finally, after over a year in production, we have released our first cookbook featuring 100 of our favorite recipes. Selling a cookbook has been a project I have had in the back of my mind since taking over ownership of the inn nearly four years ago. But until last year, the project has existed only in my mind until Rebecca Anne Chapman, an intern from 2008 to 2009 approached me with the idea of finally publishing all the recipes frequently requested by guests. “Go for it,” I encouraged, “but you have no idea how time consuming and tedious this is going to be.” I figured I had scared her off, but Becky persevered and several months later, with the help of our Executive Chef, Kevin Case, had submitted our most popular recipes to an online cookbook publishing company and was ready to go to print. It took me almost another year to proof the book, and finalize decisions like layout and photo selection, but the endless project is now hot off the press and available for sale.
The cookbook includes breakfast recipes like Eggs Italiano and Apple Dollar Pancakes as well as high tea treats such as Traditional Scones and Pineapple Right-Side-Up Cake. You can purchase the cookbook for $9.95 at our gift shop during your next visit or at our online store and we’ll ship it to you. Cookbooks also make a wonderful gift and are a great way to remind that special someone of the wonderful time you shared at the Captains House Inn.
