Newark whets tri-City appetites
The city of Newark is 50 years old and during those years has learned how to do things right. One of its best legacies is now available for purchase and a subsequent palate inspection on Friday, August 19. Not only will this commemorative item provide a feast for the eyes, but will also tantalize other senses as well. The public is invited to review (and buy) a celebratory cookbook filled with recipes of elected officials, city staff members, organizations, local businesses, volunteers and long-time citizens. Published by the Newark Days Celebration, the collection contains 283 recipes including Mayor Smith's High Sierra Trout, school board member Janice Schaefer's Almond Wild Rice Soup and the infamous Tri-City Waste Management "Dump Cake."
The book is available for only $15 from the League of Volunteers and the Newark Chamber of Commerce. For those who prefer to taste before they buy, a "tasting party" will be held on Friday, August 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the League of Volunteers Service Center. Along with recipes, the book includes historic photos such as the swearing in of the first city council and the celebrated moment when the first stoplight was turned on. This cookbook has it all and to prove it, there are even recipes for Fido.
For information about the tasting party and to purchase the Newark Days 50th Anniversary Cookbook, contact LOV at (510) 793-5683 or the Newark Chamber of Commerce (510) 744-1000.
