Home Economics Pamphlets Collection Inspires Cooking Contest and Taste Testing on Friday, February 13

Please join University Library's Digital Projects Team for Vintage Viands, a taste testing of vintage recipes showcased in the online Home Economics, Food, and Nutrition Pamphlets Collection in the Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives Department. 

Faculty and staff of the University Libraries will be working hard to make these recipes as authentic as possible for people to try. There will be a competition for the best and worst food from the recipes, so we invite library patrons to attend, and need your taste buds and your votes!

The tasting event will be Friday, February 13, 2015 from 12:30-2:30 in the Reading Room of Jackson Library. We will be serving food until it runs out, so come out early!

In addition to the taste testing, the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collection & University Archives will have a display of the actual pamphlets held by the Libraries.

Please contact Callie Coward at or 336-334-5781 or Erica Rau at if you have additional questions.
