Then & Now - A Heritage Cookbook $25.00
Our Volunteers spent hundreds of hours culling through our archives, deciphering handwritten family recipes and contacting the descendants of the owners of our classic lakeside resorts and restaurants to produce our very own Cookbook. In an age when a recipe is just a click away, we think this cookbook will be one you'll turn to again and again to create your own taste of Eagle River and the Northwoods. Then & Now - A Heritage Cookbook contains over 300 recipes, backstories, historic photos and postcards from our Museum Archives. Whether you’re a long-time resident, a seasonal homeowner, or a regular visitor to the Northwoods, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the stories, classic photos and tastes we’ve collected. “Holy Smokes!” Charlie Berens, Comedian, Emmy Award Winning Journalist, and New York Times Best Selling Author has written a special forward for our new Cookbook! All proceeds go directly to the operation of our Museums and the preservation of our Collections.
