2. I'm culling my cookbooks - I had to throw away my oldest one: Betty Crocker from the 50's

It was my only cookbook for several years, pages torn and stained, falling out!

I have an oldie from the 1800's; has some weird advice and recipes. Can't remember the name right now, think it might be valuable as a collectable.

3. I collect old cookbooks, too

I love the history of food and have read quite a bit about food and food history. I just found a book, The Anthropology of Food, can't wait to read it. I like to read old community cookbooks, too. That's where I got the information that I posted. I keep files of cookbook advice and sayings and really bad recipes that I find in community cookbooks.
