Throughout the history of the Old Dartmouth Historical Society - New Bedford Whaling Museum. volunteers have been essential both to Museum operations and to our unique visitor experience. The Volunteer Council provides 13,000 hours of invaluable visitor information, interpretation, and research annually.
This cookbook is published by the Volunteer Council of the Old Dartmouth Historical Society. It contains over 450 favorite recipes collected from volunteers, friends, staff, trustees, and members of the museum.
"Favorite Recipes from Johnny Cake Hill" is both a product and a symbol of the commitment, generosity, and talent of our Museum volunteers. We hope you will enjoy its spirit, flavor, and variety which is as far flung and international as the voyages of New Bedford's world wandering whaleships.
