Friendship Club Cook Book




Gift of



The Friendship Club is an inter-racial women's social club. It was
founded two years ago in Madison by a group of Negro and white women,
who felt that in developing mutual understanding among themselves, they
were thus answering a most grave result of segregation--ignorance.

In the course of its short history, the club has brought together white,
Negro, Chinese, Jewish, Catholic and Protestant women; working and
professional women, students and teachers, mothers and housewives.

In informal gatherings, at our pot-luck suppers, sewing bees, teas and
coffee hours, the women of the Friendship Club have gained insight into
each others problems and re-affirmed their confidence that if people
of different races, creeds and national origins would but have the
opportunity to know and appreciate each other, it would be a long step
forward towards solving some of the trying problems which face us all.

This little book is a token of our friendship and faith in each other
and in all people.

 1951                                               Madison, Wisconsin

In this little cookbook you will find the favorite recipes of the Club
members and many of their friends. They are favorites for one or more of
three reasons--economy, ease of preparation, or unusual tastiness.

The simplicity of the book is in keeping with the simplicity of our
belief--our differences are superficial; our likenesses are fundamental.
For we are all members of a single race--the human race.
