Calling All Cooks! We want your International Recipes!

The Lorain Historical Society Gift Shop is working on a cookbook which will reflect the International Heritage of our great city.  We are asking interested Lorainites (current and former) to share their favorite family recipes with us, particularly those with ethnic origins.  Did you know that we have identified over 55 different nationalities that have settled in Lorain?  Our goal is to obtain recipes from as many different cultures as possible.

The cookbooks will be professionally printed, and published in a full color 3-ring hardcover binder.

The targeted launch of these cookbooks is slated for June, 2018, just in time for the Annual International Festival!  The deadline for recipe submission is February 15, 2018.  Do you have a favorite recipe handed down from one of your relatives?  Send it our way!  

To obtain additional information about the cookbook,  a recipe submission form, or to reserve your copy of the cookbook, please contact the Lorain Historical Society at (440) 245-2563 or by e-mail:
