What could possibly be better than one really good Public Domain Cookbook?
How ’bout 76 of ‘em?!
Ever considered creating your very own Public Domain Cookbook publishing empire?
If so, here’s a very good place to start…
This incredible collection of vintage cookbooks is well worth taking note of especially if you need content for anything you may be doing in food and cooking related niches.
A little from the site itself by way of introduction…
The Feeding America project has created an online collection of some of the most important and influential American cookbooks from the late 18th to early 20th century. The digital archive includes page images of 76 cookbooks from the MSU Library’s collection as well as searchable full-text transcriptions. This site also features a glossary of cookery terms and multidimensional images of antique cooking implements from the collections of the MSU Museum.
The Feeding America online collection hopes to highlight an important part of America’s cultural heritage for teachers, students, researchers investigating American social history, professional chefs, and lifelong learners of all ages.
