As someone who loves to cook and enjoys recipes that have a special meaning, I was thrilled to discover the “Akron Family Recipes” cookbook by Judy Orr James. This book is more than just a collection of recipes; it’s a history of home cooking in Akron, Ohio, that dates back to the city’s founding in 1825.

What makes this cookbook truly special is the diverse range of recipes included. With the arrival of different cultural and ethnic groups to Akron over the years, the city’s cuisine has evolved and become even more delicious. From pierogies brought by Polish immigrants to southern-inspired dishes from African American ancestors, this book truly captures the melting pot of flavors that make up Akron’s food scene.
One particular highlight of the book is the sauerkraut ball, Akron’s official food and favorite snack. These savory balls can be found at local restaurants, cocktail parties, holiday celebrations, and game-day gatherings. I can’t wait to try this recipe for my family and share in this beloved local tradition.
Overall, the “Akron Family Recipes” cookbook is a wonderful addition to any kitchen, especially for those who want to connect with the history and traditions of this great city. I look forward to trying out more of these family recipes and creating new memories with my loved ones. Get your own copy of the book here!
