Cooking with Met Life: Company Cookbooks of the Early 20th Century 

Would you make the recipes from a cookbook sent to you by your life insurance company? Food historian and curator of King Manor Museum, Kelsey Brow, will discuss the cookbooks produced by companies from 1900 through the 1930s. This talk will explore the gendered history of how these cookbooks were made and used. You will also get a chance to look at some of these antique cookbooks for yourself.

Cookbook Swap

The afternoon includes a cookbook swap. Bring your extra cookbooks and take home some new recipes. Light refreshments will be served. Suggested donation: $5.
