Welcome to 2020! And the first episode of the podcast recorded in 2020. Today I had fun sharing with you a passage written by Anne Mendelson and published in the Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink about cookbooks and manuscripts from 1920-1940. At that time, many cookbooks were still focused on all-purpose tomes that covered many aspects of not just cookery but domestic and home economics, but as we learn from Anne, cookbooks started to evolve during the early 20th century even into books that people enjoyed to read and use as armchair cooks and travelers.
