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.
Some interesting books I was considering buying:
The Academy itself is really beautiful. Take a look at some of the rooms here.
