“Though my house has something of a pedigree, I do not,” says Gwen Rogers, former Hollywood executive-cum-cookbook author. It is out of pure love of family, tradition, and friends that Gwen brings us Welcome to Honeysuckle Hill.
This beautifully curated cookbook is all about creating your own unique bounty with family and friends. It sounds silly, but these recipes feel incredibly warm and personal since they derive from Gwen’s lifelong relationships. You will love brunch ideas like Cindy’s Double Secret Banana Bread, spring picnic recipes such as Mom’s Meatloaf, and birthday dinner surprises that include Thelma’s Old-Fashioned Birthday Cake and Frosting. Welcome to Honeysuckle Hill is a feast for all the senses. Each and every recipe is easy to follow and presented within the context of celebrations at Gwen’s historic Honeysuckle Hill property—the former home of Bette Davis. Gwen’s extensive decorative arts collections and magnificent gardens (yes, Gwen has also become a master rosarian) make the dishes come to life in their meticulously bound pages. Gwen shared that she didn’t initially intend to publish a cookbook. She simply wanted to collect and record all of her mother’s recipes while she was still alive. Once the passion took on a life of its own, she realized the book could be a great resource for anyone who likes “can to table” cooking. What really makes Welcome to Honeysuckle Hill stand out from any other cookbook is that it features quirky pairings of retro recipes with collectibles. Frankly, this volume is a collectible in and of itself for any true collectista.
