The Cambrian

Cambria resident seeks local men's recipes for cookbook

Cambria resident Victoria Krassensky is creating a cookbook to highlight the culinary skills of Cambria men and is looking for recipes to include.

All cultures and levels of cuisine will be considered: hot and cold dishes; appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, side dishes, desserts, cocktails and baked items. The full-color, hardbound book is expected to include a photo and biography of each cook, an image and a description of the recipe, and a photo of the finished dish.

A team is being selected to judge submissions, and 20 men will be selected for inclusion in the book; each will be awarded $100. Submissions must be from men 18 or older who are at least part-time Cambria residents.

Recipes should be mailed, along with a short bio, to 6905 Jordan Road, Cambria, CA 93428. Details: email vreynolds738@ Recipes must be received by July 31.

Proceeds from the book will benefit Greenspace — The Cambria Land Trust.
