Cookbook Donations Wanted

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum, which lost more than half its cookbook collection to the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina, is asking folks for a hand to help rebuild.

The museum is hoping to remake itself from this tragedy into the largest repository of books, booklets, manuscripts, and documents about Southern food and drink. It is seeking not only culinary books about the American South, but also periodicals from other areas that have influenced Southern foodways. Books in all conditions are happily accepted.

Send your tax-deductible donations to:

Southern Food & Beverage Museum
Attn. Liz Williams
1 Poydras Street, #169
New Orleans, Louisiana 70130

 Please include your name and address with your donation, because the museum would like to thank you for your efforts. For more information about the project, click here.

  • Nice to have found your blog, Carolyn. I’ll bookmark the url.

    I have to do a serious pare-down of my cookbook collection soon, so I’m happy to know there’ll be a worthwhile home for my castoffs down South.
