Florida's first lady Ann Scott to publish cookbook

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - First Lady Ann Scott is planning to release a cookbook to mark the Sunshine State's 500th anniversary.

The cookbook's theme is Viva Florida and will feature a collection of favorite recipes from former first ladies, along with photos and biographies of each of them. Former first ladies' Mary Call Collins and Carole Crist will be among those featured in the book.

Scott said Thursday the cookbook will be titled 'La Florida' and will include a foreword by former mansion chef Art Smith.

The Miami Herald reports the wives of Gov. Leroy Collins and Gov. Reubin Askew, have also published cookbooks.

It's unclear when Scott's cookbook will be released or how much it will cost.
