Members of FMCA and other RV organizations throughout the United States are contributing recipes. In addition to nearly 200 recipes, the cookbook will contain historical photos and information about the history of RVing, as well as RV maintenance information.
Recipes may be submitted via e-mail only, using the form at: http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e2sts335g6u6bqsj/a00yg77pmyq7/questions. The submission deadline is April 26, 2010.
Cooper is looking for recipes that are easy to prepare in an RV or at the campsite. They can be old-time family favorites, non-traditional or any fun recipe that RVers would like to share.
In addition to recipes, RVers are asked to submit brief biographical information, including their involvement with RVs.
"My main goal in this project is to show our nation’s love for RVing,” said Cooper, who works for Workamper News, a resource for RVers who want to work while they travel. “This will be a collector’s edition of recipes collected exclusively from those who know and love RVing most – that is, members of national RV clubs and organizations.”
Each person who submits a recipe that is chosen for the book will have a page dedicated to their personal RV history and the RV group they represent.
“Not only am I showing our appreciation of 100 years of the RV industry, but also to our RV groups/clubs throughout this nation,” Cooper said.
The RV maintenance information is a unique feature for a cookbook, she said, and should broaden the book’s appeal.
Evada’s husband, Terry Cooper, is a master certified RV technician/instructor from Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas. “He is providing me with maintenance facts, tips, procedures, checklists and maintenance schedules that are so vital for the upkeep of our RVs,” she said. “Having this RV maintenance information right at your finger tips, along with your favorite recipes, is a wonderful idea I know others will embrace.”
The cookbook will be useful for women who want to know more about RV maintenance, Cooper said. “What a perfect tool this cookbook will be for them. However, men who love to cook are also the ones who will appreciate this cookbook and its technical information.”
Everyone whose recipe appears in the book will receive a free copy of the cookbook, Mrs. Cooper said.
