Assistance League® of the Bay Area Members Approve the Production of a Cookbook
In 1996, members of Assistance League of the Bay Area voted to create and publish its first cookbook, Settings on the Dock of the Bay. The cookbook was three years in development as recipes were collected, tested, tasted, and rated, all while members hosted luncheons and dinner parties to narrow down selections.
Settings on the Dock of the Bay included a collection of creative and diverse recipes that expressed and explored the region’s multiplicity of cultures and commerce from the waters of the Gulf Coast to the outer limits of the universe. Printed three times, this cookbook was awarded the prestigious 2000 Southwest Regional Winner of the Tabasco Community Cookbook Award.
