Dalton Cookbook Celebration

The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Governor John N. Dalton’s entry into office as the 63rd Governor of Virginia. A major part of how Virginians learned about Dalton was through the cookbooks his wife, Eddy Dalton, produced to share recipes and information about what her husband could do for Virginia. We are honoring this dual legacy with the reprinting of the 1977 promotional cookbook, “Our Favorite Recipes.”

Join Edwina (Eddy) Dalton Phillips and her children at the Glencoe Mansion for the release of the Anniversary Edition of “Our Favorite Recipes.” We will sample recipes from the 1977 cookbook and look back as the Dalton family shares stories of the development of the cookbook and their memories of Governor Dalton.
