Web Resource: Vintage Cookbook

Have you ever wanted to find a cookbook from your grandmother’s or great-grandmother’s generation? Or maybe a cookbook that’s out of print, from a restaurant long gone, or from a cultural generation that’s in the pages of history?

Chances are you may find it on Vintage Cookbook, a wonderful website with an impressive collection of rare, hard-to-find, out of print cookbooks from days long gone. It’s always so interesting for us to flip through vintage cookbooks. They’re a window into history. Some of the recipes and social norms are so vastly different and outdated, and somewhat offensive. At the same time, it’s so interesting to see how much our food and culture has changed in the span of twenty, fifty, seventy, and a hundred years.
