Join University Library’s Digital Projects Team for Vintage Viands, a taste testing of vintage recipes showcased in the online Home Economics, Food, and Nutrition Pamphlets Collection in the library’s Special Collections and University Archives Department.
Faculty and staff of the University Libraries will be working hard to make these recipes as authentic as possible for people to try. There will be a competition for the best and worst food from the recipes, so they invite library patrons to attend.
The tasting event will be Friday, Feb. 13, 2015, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the Reading Room of Jackson Library. They will be serving food until it runs out, so come out early.
In addition to the taste testing, the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collection & University Archives will have a display of the actual pamphlets held by the Libraries.
