Australian Cookbooks Travelling Display

Long before Masterchef, food and recipes played an important part in family life. What do you think were popular recipes appearing on the dinner tables in our past?

Sutherland Library will be hosting a display of colourful reproductions from the State Library of NSW's fascinating collection of original cookbooks.
This display reveals a culinary story about food trends from the 1860s to the present day.

Cookbooks provide an interesting social record of the times and document the impact of food on war, celebrations, the Great Depression, migration and new technology.

Australian Cookbooks is a free display that can be seen at Sutherland Library during hours of opening from 10 September to 4th October 2010.
