Designed to highlight Edna Lewis’s story and show visitors from near and far the amazing things happening today in the Orange County Food Scene, we have invited local restauranteurs to participate in a Special Menu Trail to to highlight the 50th Anniversary of the release of Edna Lewis’s first cookbook – The Edna Lewis Cookbook in 1972. Participating restaurants will have their version of a recipe from Edna Lewis’s featured cookbook on their restaurant menu from Thanksgiving 2022 to Memorial Day 2023.
