July 28, Cookbook Showcase: Recipes and techniques are passed down from generation to generation. Sometimes they are written on note cards, in journals and in the covers of cookbooks. American cookbook publishing started in colonial times. Visit the Tangen House and 1900 Farm today for a peek at the evolution of cookbooks! The Advocate Print Shop will also be printing a period recipe.
