Do you have a favorite personal or family recipe? Help us compile a cookbook that reflects our unique community!

We are especially looking for original recipes. However, if your recipe is adapted from an already-published one, please provide attribution (we don’t want to infringe on any copyrights). While your recipe may include a similar list of ingredients as the original, the description of how to make the dish must be uniquely your own.

Each individual may submit up to five recipes. (Depending on the number of submissions we receive and considering the balance of the cookbook, some submissions may not be used.)

Please understand that narratives and recipes may be edited to fit the format and space available.

Please complete and submit this form by January 11, 2021.

By submitting your recipes you are giving Chillicothe Public Library District permission to use, post, print, publish and/or distribute the recipes, narratives, and accompanying materials.

Note: Contact information will only be used if we need to get in touch with a question about your recipe as we are putting together this project. It will not be made public or included in the published cookbook.
