WHAT’S COOKING IN OUR ARCHIVES! A TASTE OF THE PAST

Extract from the booklet Chatelaine Seasonal Soirées (detail), about 1980. Gift of Shawn Rosengarten, Recipes and Food Collection C265, M2009.71.15, McCord Stewart Museum

Recipes for Your Holiday Table

The Museum’s Archives collection includes nearly 1,000 cookbooks and recipe pamphlets produced between the mid-18th and early 21st centuries. Appealing in more ways than one, the collection offers information about changing eating habits, social norms surrounding meals, the role of women in the family home, advertising, and the development of new culinary practices.
