Community Cookbook Series

For several years, Our State featured recipes from the pages of community and church cookbooks from around North Carolina. These dishes continue to be among some of our most popular and enjoyed.


Moravian Chicken Pie

This Moravian-inspired chicken pie recipe makes a delicious and hearty meal, and preparing it is a cinch — the hardest part is waiting for it to cook.


Oyster or Clam Fritters

Use oyster liquor or clam juice to make a snack that’s deliciously fried and full of flavor.


Roasted Stuffed Stripers

Instead of carving a turkey or ham during the holidays, go with a whole striped bass. (This may not go over well at the kids’ table.)
