The Sheridan Libraries’ Department of Special Collections has cookbooks dating back to the late 16th century, providing a fascinating glimpse into the history of food culture. In this presentation, Heidi Herr, Outreach Librarian for Special Collections and the librarian for English and Philosophy, will lead us on a culinary journey through the Libraries’ cookbook collection, highlighting 18th-century whimsical food trends, empowering and at times scandalous women who traded in the frying pan for the pen, and much more.
