Nestled among our stacks of rare books and manuscripts lie a genre of printed material that may surprise even veteran researchers – cookbooks! From “Cheesecake the Common Way,” to “Fish House Punch,” and “Mrs. Rorer’s Chicken Souffle” we have found dozens of historic recipes in our collection that offer a fascinating insight into the everyday life of past generations of Philadelphians.

Join Library Company staff for a mouth‐watering discussion about the historic cookbooks found within our collection, try some tasty treats from the past, and bring a copy of a favorite recipe from your own family history to share.
