Homemade dishes from appetizers to desserts are helping raise funds for Cumming Chapter 1030 of Vietnam Veterans of America.

The cookbook is $12 and available for purchase from any chapter member, or can be picked up at Goodson Drug and Foster House Restaurant, both in downtown Cumming.

Marty Farrell, a spokesman for the group, said it has about 50 members, all of whom contributed to the project.

According to Farrell, members were looking for a “solid fundraising idea” when one of the member’s wives suggested a cookbook.

“The fact of the matter is people who like to cook or who like to eat all like cookbooks,” he said.

He added that the recipes are largely those passed down through families and run the gamut of everything “from Southern cornbread to ethnic dishes.”

“There’s chicken alfredo lasagna, chicken cordon bleu roll-ups, and the one that my wife submitted — I’m going to tell you if you don’t try this, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life — it’s called crockpot Italian pot roast and it’s awesome,” he said.

The group is open to any Vietnam War era veteran. It meets the first Monday of every month at Golden Corral restaurant on Market Place Boulevard, with dinner at 6 p.m. and the meeting at 7 p.m. The next meeting is Monday.

“We’re always looking for new members,” Farrell said.
