La Providencia selling cookbook

Hot off the presses is the “Ladies of Great Taste” cookbook,

produced as a fund-raiser by La Providencia Guild, which supports

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.


Organizing the 14-month project was Charlene Dettmann, who, along

with her 14 committee members, checked and rechecked recipes for

accuracy. Member Sharon Terranova was the first to contribute recipes

to the cookbook and received a free copy.


A total of 800 recipes were contributed by members, past

presidents and former members and more than 700 are included in the


There are 10 categories, such as Pies and Fruits, Meats, Main

Dishes and Microwave and Pasta, Poultry and Fish. A special feature

is the book’s hard cover, which can folded to sit on a counter while

preparing a dish. There are also pages at the end of each category to

add favorite recipes.


Member Rilla Rogan has painted a watercolor of a lady on the page

before each category.

The cookbook costs $25 and can be ordered by calling Dettmann at

845-6992. It will also be sold at the guild’s annual fashion show on

Oct. 5. Proceeds will go to Childrens Hospital.

This is the guild’s second cookbook. Cookbook chairwoman Dettmann

also was in charge of that cookbook’s publication. The first cookbook

was published in honor of the guild’s 40th anniversary 16 years ago.
