Local Cookbooks, Not Local Recipes

March 15, 2013

While sorting through more material at the Fenton History Center, three cookbooks were found together. They were of similar format but different colors and different titles. On further investigation these cookbooks were from different years and different publishers. They were also presented by different local organizations. Many of the local cookbooks over the years contain recipes submitted by the members of the organization. These cookbooks did not contain contributed recipes. All the cookbooks had recipes apparently supplied by the publisher but of particular interest for local history, there were many advertisements for local businesses. Also of interest for local history in all three books, information about each sponsoring organization, including membership lists, is included with pictures.
