This page contains links to our posts about vintage cookbooks, long out-of-print, that we feel are worth seeking out for their quirky or community sensibility. Putting together cookbooks was done by union locals, community groups, church groups and the like, and many of these are well worth remembering. Sometimes the cookbooks would try to capture a certain place, or community, while others try to bring new types of cooking to the people. Each post features one recipe from each cookbook we look at.
