New Big Sur Cookbook

Be a part of history!!!!

The Big Sur Historical Society is discussing creating another cookbook.  Our last one was made in 1981!  It was titled “Recipes for Living in Big Sur”.  Our new one is tentatively titled “Recipes for Surviving in Big Sur”, with the theme of disasters, fire, flood, road outages, pandemics etc.

If you are interested in being on the cookbook committee or submitting a recipe(s) please email us at  Or you may mail your recipe to the BSHS at P.O. Box 176, please write the word “recipe” on the outside of the envelope.  If there is enough interest we will move forward with the project, so please send in your favorite recipes soon!!

We’re excited about creating a new book 40 years later!  Our first book is in its fifth edition so if you don’t already have a copy you may go to our web site at or visit a local shop.
