The Whitman County Historical Society needs your generous contributions of recipes, food related stories and images for a book about food grown and prepared on the Palouse from the 1860s to the 1960s.

Please send us your contributions of recipes you remember, food related stories and pictures. If you have menus or details of meals cooked for large gatherings like picnics, farm crews, wakes and early weddings please share them with us. One of our main objectives is to show the original recipe and an update of early recipes to be acceptable for modern dietary needs addressing a healthy diet.
