The Cookbook Family Tree: A History of Early Cookbooks
Culinary Historians of New York present

"The Cookbook Family Tree: A History of Early Cookbooks"
Anne Willan

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Before 1501, the first four printed cookbooks were written in English, Latin, German, and French in four European countries. Who wrote these early cookbooks? Who read them? Who used them, and how did they evolve into the recipe books, dining guides and gastronomic memoirs we know today? Join us as Anne Willan, founder of the iconic French cooking school École de Cuisine La Varenne, explains the origin of these early volumes and traces their legacy in the many genres of food writing in the centuries that follow.

Anne Willan has more than fifty years' experience as a teacher, cookbook author, and food columnist. Her accolades include the IACP Lifetime Achievement Award, James Beard Award, and Bon Appétit Teacher of the Year Award. The author of more than thirty cookbooks, Anne's long-awaited The Cookbook Library: Four Centuries of the Cooks, Writers, and Recipes That Made the Modern Cookbook will be published in April 2012 by the University of California Press. The book is based on the extensive cookbook collection Anne and her husband Mark Cherniavsky have amassed through years of passionate collecting. Anne is also working on a memoir.

A sampling of recipes from cookbooks over the years will be served at the reception.
