Recipes that Withstood Time 

Passed Down from Generation to Generation

The Bethlehem Historical Association has compiled a fine book with an impressive collection of recipes. The cookbook is being sold for $10 at the Museum. Please note that you can also purchase it at our generous bookstore here in town I Love Books. 

We appreciate the support of all those who contributed recipes and helped to get this book together.
