Church ladies and their recipes wanted for cooking show

A new cooking show is gearing up for production in North County and will come to YouTube by September. “Church Ladies Potluck” is a half-hour, 13-week cooking show based on heritage recipes passed down through the generations to preserve these homemade dishes.

Organizers are seeking churches and recipes to participate. Programming is nondenominational, nonsectarian and all-inclusive. Every organized religious group with a church kitchen is eligible.

Interested church groups are requested to reach out and set up an interview. Everyone will be considered.

For decades, church ladies have prepared their prized potluck recipes to share with members of the congregation, which is the premise for the series.

In keeping with that custom, a communal meal will be served to parishioners following a prayer led by the featured pastor.

Filmed in local church kitchens, “Church Ladies Potluck” will embrace heirloom recipes prepared by family members. Each episode will include a four-course menu: appetizer, salad, main dish and dessert.

Only heirloom recipes will be used. Ideally, each congregation will also have a cookbook for it is these old-style, often quirky, recipes that are being sought.

Even though church services may still be closed, this project can meet the criteria for gatherings under 10 with a small crew, while maintaining social distancing.

If your church wishes to participate or you know of one, contact Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal at [email protected] or 442-444-1664.
