Pictured: a community cookbook from the New York Sons and Daughters of Liberty
Monday, June 18, 2012
I love community cookbooks! They are so much fun, as they give a sense of the time and the place that they came from. These are usually paperback cookbooks, many with spiral binding, collected by members of a church, PTA, school, or community. The recipes always have the contributing member's name, and sometimes have a story about the recipe as well. The older ones that I have in my store date from the 1960's to 1970's, all the way to the present. You'll find many to browse through at Birdhouse Books (community cookbooks).
