For immediate release:
New Cookbook To Benefit St. George Island's First Responders Unit;
Book Signing Event Planned at Apalachicola's Florida Seafood Festival
"A Taste of St. George Island, The Art of Gulf Coast Cooking", the long awaited collections of Franklin County's most treasured recipes is coming!
Along with its beautiful beaches and lovely sunsets, St. George Island is also famous for wonderful cookbooks and loyal volunteers. Beginning with the first book published in 1994, this successful fundraising effort along the Gulf Coast has always helped support a much needed community service. This new book is a beautifully presented collection of favorite recipes contributed by residents and homeowners from St. George Island and the surrounding areas of Franklin County. The organizers say, "With this book, our community finds a special way to thank, celebrate and support our First Responders, a unit of our St. George Island Volunteer Fire Department. All proceeds will go to help keep our most dedicated unit ever strong."
This edition will also feature local artist, Beth Appleton's cut paper assemblages. Inspired by island life, the artist helped design the book by selecting her brightest and most colorful works to illustrate chapters and pattern pages. "I have loved working on this project", Appleton says, "This cookbook is a fantastic way for all of us to help our island first responders. They are not just our neighbors, they are modern day heroes."
The cookbook will be released to the public during this year's 50th Annual Florida Seafood Festival held in Apalachicola, Florida. Appleton will be on hand to sign books on Friday, November 1st from 4:00-6:00 p.m. and again on Saturday, November 2nd from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the Island's First Responder's nonprofit display at the festival. The cookbook will also be available for sale during other festival hours as well.
Excited about the release of this fourth cookbook, founder and organizer, Alice Collins, says, "We hope you will not only treat yourself but also use the cookbooks to gift others; they really make fantastic presents and support a great cause. These cookbooks have proved very popular in past years; we expect this book to become a collector's dream."
