Autographs of Tastes & Treasures II cookbook

Jeannine Moyle
Jeannine Moyle bought her copy of Tastes and Treasures II cookbook at the AZ Statehood Celebration at the AZ Heritage Center on Feb 13 and immediately started to go through it. Sitting next to Margaret Baker in the auditorium, she asked Margaret to sign the Gass Bros. page in her cookbook!  This page is about Margaret's grandfather's restaurant in downtown Phoenix. Margaret was so surprised and honored. Jeannine commented that she thought the Gass Bros. page was one of the best of the tribute pages because it was such a part of early 1900 Arizona history.

Lunch at Lon's at Hermosa Inn

Ruth McLeod and Elaine Kapach
Delightful patio and delicious food on a lovely late January day, that's what happens at Lon's at Hermosa Inn. We enjoyed the gardens and big trees; visited with Stan and Nancy Evans who also thought it was a great day for Lon's. Recognize the front door to Hermosa Inn? It's the front cover of Tastes & Treasures II; A Stortytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona. Written by all volunteers and at O'Neil Printing now, the book is the latest publication from the Historical League.

It will be available for the first time at the February 13 Statehood Day Celebration at AZ Heritage Center. Featuring Historymaker Marshall Trimble and balladeer Dolan Ellis, as well as announcing the 2019 Historymakers, this will be quite an evening. From 6-8:30 pm. Tickets at
