Newly Digitized Manuscript Cookbooks
This summer, UTSA Libraries Special Collections digitized 24 additional manuscript cookbooks from the Mexican Cookbook Collection. Dating from 1789 to the 1960s these handwritten recipe books provide a window into the lives and kitchens of Mexican women over the course of almost two hundred years.
Complete digital surrogates of these cookbooks (as well as those previously digitized) are available in our Digital Collections. Over the next several weeks, selected recipes will be featured here on La Cocina Histórica.
To sneak a peek at the original documents, stop by the JPL Reading Room, where six of these treasures will be on display during the Fall Semester.
