'Building an Appetite' Cookbook Series

The "Building More Appetites" cookbook series was inspired by Doug Wistner, son of NAHB Immediate Past Chairman Granger MacDonald and his wife Kathy. Doug was a passionate cook who passed away unexpectedly in January 2015.

To honor his memory, the MacDonald family created a cookbook series known as "Building More Appetites." The first cookbook was a compilation of recipes submitted by NAHB members and their families, as well as staff. All sales proceeds have gone to support the National Housing Endowment/NAHB Doug Wistner Scholarship Fund.

Because the first edition was such a success, we decided to create a second edition, "Around Our Table." The cookbook will be available to purchase at the 2019 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Feb. 19-21.
