Dining with Oaklands is a cookbook comprised of recipes from Oaklands Association founding members, Maney family members, past regents and local cooks. Created to highlight a focus on community, sharing, and the importance of food as it relates to culture and the history of Oaklands, our cookbook serves as a resource for cooking, a platform for storytelling, and as a way to connect across cultures and communities.


Mrs. Ginny Gaither, a past regent of Oaklands Association, is one of our prized contributors. You can find her delicious Butterscotch Cake on page 26.
