Dear PPA Members:


PPA’s Committee on Multiculturalism is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite family recipes from our members. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for all of us. Money raised will be used to fund our Multicultural Student Award given to a deserving psychology doctoral student at our annual convention.

Please submit up to 5 of your favorite family recipes. Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a huge success. We would like recipes from all cultures and ethnic backgrounds to be included.  Also, you will have an opportunity to include a brief story about the heritage of the recipe in the notes section.


We are using Morris Press Cookbook’s web site to easily submit recipes online.  Please submit your recipes online by Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 11:59 PM so we can have our cookbooks ready and available at PPA Convention in Pittsburgh, June 19-22, 2019. We anticipate that our cookbooks will be priced at approximately $20.00/each.


Send your recipe to Ann Marie at or submit your recipe online!
