Chinese Center on Long Island 長島中華協會


Dear Friends,

Our Center is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite Chinese, Asian and other recipes from our members. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all.  Money raised will be used to replenish our building fund.

Please submit 3-5 (more or less is fine) of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook.  Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success.  We are using Morris Press Cookbook’s website to easily submit recipes online.   If you do not have internet access, our committee can enter them for you.  Submit hardcopies of your recipes to Janice Chew, Mona Ng, Margaret Chu or Judy Chan.  Send them to our attention at the Chinese Center, 395 Hempstead Turnpike, West Hempstead, N.Y. 11552.   Make copies of included recipe sheet.

We anticipate a great demand for our cookbooks, and we want to be certain to order enough. To reserve your copies, CLICK the 'Order Cookbook' button now.  Let me know the number of cookbooks you will be purchasing.  Cookbooks will be available for $20.  We anticipate having them on sale by Thanksgiving.  What a great holiday gift idea.  Please submit your recipes by October 5, 2015 so we can meet our deadline.  The top two people to submit the most recipes will receive a free cookbook.

Thank you! Janice Chew, Mona Ng, Margaret Chu, Judy Chan
