Description

A CHC Members-only tour of the new exhibit at the Fisher Rare Book Library

Mixed Messages: Making and Shaping Culinary Culture in Canada

Co-curator and Special Collections Projects Librarian Elizabeth Ridolfo, will give CHC members a guided tour of this exciting new culinary exhibit at the Fisher. The Mixed Messages exhibit will display “a tasty arrangement of rare cookbooks, periodicals (magazines), manuscripts and culinary objects from the 1820s to the 1960s." This exhibition will examine how the culinary culture of Toronto and surrounding areas was made and shaped by those who participated in or were excluded from the making and using of culinary materials.

"On display will be many scarce items which are part of our collections due to the generous donations of CHC Honorary Lifetime Member Mary Williamson. Featured objects include a copy of the Frugal Housewife's Manual, the first cookbook written and published in Canada, posters advertising the beloved Canadian Cook Book and an English curry bottle from the late 1800s (with curry still inside!).”

Because space is very limited, this tour is open only to members of the Culinary Historians of Canada.

Pre-registration is required.
