For Old Cookbook lovers

Old cookbooks in pdf (scanned) and transcripts. Neat site featured in Gourmet magazine in 2005.

Won't hot link unless you allow popups (though it is a university site!). Alternatively, copy this shortcut aqnd paste into your browser. (which I just did without a problem.)

      This will get you to the sort function for cookbooks.
      It's a good site and it will load from my snail slow land line, which makes it a great site.

        neobite and shallots -- yay! other old cookbook lovers! when I return from vacationing on my foodie road trip to Fla., I will be trolling the site for the "oddest" recipes and homemaking ideas. Have fun!

        What a super find, alkapal!! This is going to keep me busy for a very long time. I especially like the old Italian cookbooks, as you would imagine. Thanks very much for the link,
        Have fun on your trip.

          Thanks, I am looking forward to some Southern chowin'. Will need to work it off somehow, but worth every fried shrimp, boiled peanut, and baby back rib!

              MANY thanks, alkapal!!

              I had one of those books, and lost it in a move. I've been sorry to be without it, as it had many references that I've wished that I had. I now have it!!!
              Thanks again!

                I am so happy that you cookbook lovers are happy too. Will be ever on the alert! You know, I think cookbook lovers love more than food; they love people, and culture, and memories of good times with family and friends. And they love to create and share. Proud to be part of your circle.
