Julie's Recipe Project

About this collection

The items in this collection relate to the culinary heritage and traditions of several generations of two Appalachian American families. Featured in this collection are scanned recipes taken from manuscript and typewritten cookbooks, photographs of culinary utensils, and scans of ephemera. Items in this collection span the late 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries and include many unique and unpublished items.

In addition to providing usable recipes, the items in this collection chronicle the histories of two families by describing the foods that nourished and delighted them. Written on everything from envelopes to index cards to scraps of paper, the cookbooks form journals and works of art for the family members who created and cooked from them.

Items were selected for inclusion in this collection based on their significance within the larger collection of cookbooks, objects, and ephemera. The included recipes were frequently prepared for holidays and family gatherings, and these recipes were often thought of as signature dishes of the cooks who made them. Items in this collection may appeal to a wide audience, including scholars and historians, cooks, and the general public.
