I'm sorting through back stock boxes of cookbooks to add to online. It's constantly amazing how objects travel from place to place.
One of the cookbooks I found is The Bayou Cuisine church cookbook from St. Steven's Episcopal Church Indianola, Mississippi, it traveled north all the way to Midland, Michigan.
Published in the 1970s, this church cookbook reflects cultural influences traditionally and transitionally. This unique church cookbook includes recipes from the Indian, Spanish, French, and English eras.
Vintage cookbooks are an enjoyable way to study the history of a region, via local recipes, some even contain historical facts and photos.
It's fascinating how food has developed over the years, from the Victory cookbooks from war times to now.
Browse the Vintage Cookbooks collection for many more historical cookbooks and a glimpse of a window to the yesterday inside the pages.

Reading these books you loved as a child to your children, you could travel the world, meet interesting people and solve a mystery or just giggle at the antics the characters got into. Reading is fun!
