CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK AND MOUNT VERNON HOTEL MUSEUM & GARDEN PRESENT

"What We Can Learn from Manuscript Cookbooks"

with Stephen Schmidt

Thursday, November 13, 2014

From the middle of the 16th Century to the beginning of the 20th, many women (and a few men) of the English-speaking world compiled recipe collections in bound notebooks. These manuscript cookbooks hold a wealth of information absent from most printed cookbooks, such as clever shortcuts, ingredient substitutions, the types of meals at which dishes were served, and fashionable ways of presenting dishes. Stephen Schmidt will discuss how reading manuscript cookbooks can give us fascinating insights into food trends, styles, and practices of the past. His talk will also touch on the complicated relationship between manuscript cookbooks and printed cookbooks.

Stephen Schmidt is the principal writer and researcher for the Manuscript Cookbooks Survey, a website featuring a database of pre-1865 English-language manuscript cookbooks held in U.S. libraries and other institutions. The project is supported by the Pine Tree Foundation of New York.

A festive sampling of old English and American dishes will be served, including a cheese casserole, a mixed vegetable tart, and a celebratory yeast-raised "great cake" weighing twenty pounds.
