Eating Through Time

I won tickets through an Instagram photo contest to this neat event called Eating Through Time – an event at The New York Academy of Medicine and partnered with Atlas Obscura that highlighted some really old cookbooks in the rare books room, as well as a full day of talks and other presentations.

Got to see the great Jaques Pepin too! Horrible photo, I know…

Here’s a quick photo dump of some of the cool old recipe books. Some date back to the 9th century, and others are as recent at the 1700s. Really amazing stuff.
