Vintage cookbooks are so much more than just collections of recipes!

About this event

Historic recipes can give us a taste of the food that Maryland was once famous for. They can also offer a window into the past: changing times and trends, and the lives of everyday people.

Kara Harris maintains a database of over 50,000 recipes from Maryland cookbooks and manuscripts housed in libraries and archives around the country. She has appeared in local and national publications, TV and radio, including the Baltimore Sun, CBS Mornings, and WYPR.

This is a virtual event. Please register in advance. This event is free! Sponsored by the Friends of the Greenbelt Museum and the City of Greenbelt.

Greenbelt, Maryland, a National Historic Landmark planned community, was built in 1937 as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. The town was designed as a garden city that would be a model of modern town planning and cooperative living in America. To learn more, please visit GreenbeltMuseum.org.
