November Digital Collection Spotlight: Cookery and Culture Digital Collection

The digitized historical cookbooks in the Cookery & Culture Digital Collection date from the 1700s to the 1900s. Mostly American and British, they contain not only recipes, but also elegant engravings of table settings and cooking paraphernalia, home remedies and cure-all tonics, instructions on managing servants, and more. In short, these gastronomical treasures reveal much about the societies and economic times that created them.

May browsing these shopping lists, menus, recipes, and culinary practices from long ago bring you an enjoyable taste of the past.
