FullSizeRender

Food writing is one of those tricky facets of history. What do you continue as writing? People’s notes? The things they’ve published? Magazines, books, periodicals? Luckily enough, OSU has a wide array of publishing. From books published via the Oregon State University Press to faculty in food oriented departments, we have a lot here on campus.

One of the most fascinating things found during the food publishing searching were countless recipe books down on the first floor, ranging from a wide array of decades. As well, they had food periodicals dating to pre-20th century, and let me tell you, it’s an incredible feeling to hold a book in your hands that dates in the late 1800’s. 

Here’s a gallery of some of the awesome finds from the 1st floor!
