Suffrage Wagon Cooking School
A CALL FOR RECIPES TO HONOR INEZ MILHOLLAND IN A COOKBOOK:
Here at Suffrage Wagon Cooking School we are putting together dessert and tea party recipes to honor Inez Milholland, the U.S. suffrage martyr (1886-1916). Now through 2018, we are collecting recipes to be published on or before 2020, the nation’s national suffrage centennial when American women will have been voting for 100 years. The year 2016 was the centennial observance of Inez Milholland’s death in November 1916.
The National Women’s History Project sponsored a year-long centennial campaign for Inez in 2016. The effort continues through 2020. The web site InezMilhollandCentenial.com provides information and resources about Inez for school, community, and organizational use. An ongoing Inez blog keeps the news updated. There is also a 15-minute film about Inez Milholland’s life and contributions by filmmaker Martha Wheelock available free from InezMilholland.org.
To submit a recipe: Send us the tested dessert or appetizer recipe with description of the process of putting it together step by step, a statement by you or your group as to why Inez Milholland is important for us to honor today, and a photo of the finished product. Submission deadline: January 31, 2018. Submissions can be sent up to and including that date by email.
We’ll need your name, address, phone, email contact, plus an image of you or the group who will be submitting the recipe. If your selection is included in the cookbook, you will receive a free copy. Prizes will be awarded by the judges. Send your submissions to: Marguerite Kearns, Editor. SuffrageWagon@gmail.com Check out the Suffrage Wagon Cooking School web site. The cooking school is inspired by the “Spirit of 1766” suffrage wagon used by activist Edna Kearns that is part of the collection of the New York State Museum. For more information.
