Dixon I guess you could say the Ronald Reagan cookbooks, Dutch Treats from Dixon, are a success. A sellout before they even were printed. But, never fear, you still can get them.
It took us nearly a year to collect and edit recipes, to take photos and to assemble the cookbook. We sent it to the publisher, with an order of 300 books, said Connie Lange, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home. Within two weeks, the pre-sales were up to 320, more books than the committee had ordered.
The book includes 650 recipes, divided into nine categories.
To pre-order a cookbook, call or stop by the gift shop at the Visitor Center, next door to the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home, 816 S. Hennepin Ave., in Dixon, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. The phone number there is 815-288-5176.
Volunteers will start calling those who have pre-ordered as soon as the books arrive, Lange said. They can be picked up at the gift shop.
When the books arrive, it will be announced in the Daily Gazette and the Telegraph.
The price for a Ronald Reagan Dutch Treats from Dixon book is $22, and it is well worth it.
The 650 recipes are divided into nine categories. Among these are First Families Favorites, which includes 112 recipes, at least two from every first family since George Washington. This section will feature Dolly Madison's Pound Cake, John Quincy Adams' Codfish Pie, Benjamin Harrison's Fig Pudding, Mamie Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge, and, of course, several from President and Mrs. Reagan.
