Maggie Valley innkeeper publishes cookbook

Ginger Shinn, owner of Smokey Shadows Lodge in Maggie Valley, released a new cookbook A Taste of Smokey Shadows Lodge. The book features more than 150 recipes for tasty dishes from appetizers to desserts.

Shinn’s family has passed down many of the recipes in the collection for generations. They reflect regional specialties. The book’s pages are sprinkled with comments by the author offering insight into her passion for cooking and hospitality as well as the history of Smokey Shadows.

“(Guests) especially want to know how to make the tomato pie that’s served at nearly every dinner,” Shinn said. “With the help of my daughters, Amie and Tracy, members of the lodge staff, and friends, we finally got it all together.  It’s been a labor of love.”

Copies of the 147-page A Taste of Smokey Shadows Lodge are available from the author for $18. 828.926.0001 or mail: Ginger Shinn, 323 Smokey Shadows Lane, Maggie Valley, N.C., 28751.
