Juanita In Blue Cookbook is a Great Depression era cookbook with authentic recipes of the day. The recipe collection is that of Juanita Widner Jervis who was a legendary chef and Restaurateur in central Indiana. Growing up in the 1930’s, Juanita was a farm wife and mother as well as a community leader, nurturing all she came in contact with throughout her life. As a business woman she owned and operated The Rainbow Café in central Indiana which was known for its gourmet pie recipes for nearly 20 years. The recipes (including restaurant quantity specialties) intertwined with vignettes of Juanita's beloved family and life events provide Depression-era recipes and glimpses into rural life in the twentieth century.
