The community of Dunnavant may be small, but the hearts of the residents are about as big as they come.
Members and groups have been taking many steps to ensure a sense of togetherness. And for the Dunnavant Valley Volunteer Fire Department, the best way to get to the hearts of friends and family is through their stomachs.
In the 1980s, the Dunnavant Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary produced the Dunnavant Valley Cookbook — the first of many, said Tammy Harris, president of the auxiliary.
Since then, the auxiliary and the fire department have put out a local cookbook every five or so years, with both updated and staple meals from some of the best cooks in the area.
“Community recipe and cookbooks are more than cooking guides, they are guides to cohesive community.”
