Cookery Bookery

(When Julia Child was working on the series of recipes that would ultimately comprise Mastering the Art of French Cooking, she referred to her project as cookery bookery.)

For those of you who may have old copies of French Cooking or other neat cookbooks that you might want to donate, you can hand them over to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum culinary collection. Since Katrina, the collection, which is currently housed at the New Orleans Public Library, has been working to replace the nearly 2,000 cookbooks that were destroyed by the hurricane. Southern university libraries have been helpful in donating, but the real gems have come from individual donors.
