Why a Cookbook?

"In addition to the fun of sharing with each other our favorite recipes, we hope that this book will be an informal roster of friends old and new - and that as we thumb through its pages we shall find happy memories in the names contained herein." ​

- Lurline B. Crawford, Cookbook Committee chair (1952, 1959) for the “Dolphin Dishes” Cookbook


With the 2020 release of "Best Fed in the Fleet: Recipes from the Dining Room to the Deep," our goal is twofold: 

1) In the spirit of Mrs. Crawford’s words, our submarine community is a family of our own making, steadfast and determined in friendship. Like our submarines, our love runs deep. What better way to share it than by the breaking of bread?

2) 100% of the book sale proceeds will be donated to the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation. Dolphin Stores have closed in many submarine ports, and DSF loses more support every year. This is something we can do to continue to support a cause that gives back to our community and future generations.
