  • The Salem Chamber of Commerce is going to publish a cookbook this fall featuring favorite recipes from Salem’s best chefs, restaurants, café’s, coffee shops, bakeries, local celebrities and more. It is a fun and positive project to support the industry that has been hurt so much by the COVID pandemic.

    We see this project as a positive promotion for Salem, for the Salem Chamber, as well as for all participating chefs, restaurants, and sponsors. We hope that the project will help to re-establish Salem’s reputation as a culinary destination, driving diners to re-opened restaurants. Pre-publication the Salem Chamber will start an on-line publishing and sales campaign featuring favorite take-out recipes and food stories. The Cookbook will be available for sale with pre-order on-line starting August 1st.

    Salem’s Cookin’ will serve as a fundraiser to benefit the Salem Food Pantry, while also providing publicity to the businesses, organizations and individuals whose recipes are included.

    Salem’s Cookin’ will be professionally designed and printed, and will include a brief culinary history of Salem, VIP recipes, and some anecdotes and special stories as well. A limited number of sponsorship opportunities will be created to cover a portion of the printing costs. We will start off with a run of 1,000 copies, and expect to sell Salem’s Cookin’ on-line, at the Chamber Office, in bookstores and other retailers, as well as at events.

    Categories of recipes to be included are:

    • Breakfast
    • Soup, Salad, Sandwich
    • Appetizers
    • Entrees & Side Dishes
    • Desserts
    • Pastries & Breads
    • Cocktails
