What Can We Learn from Community Cookbooks?

Read about community cookbooks in the Globe and Mail and discover the origins of the butter tart and Nanaimo bar.  The local charitable groups and organizations, who published the majority of these books, would write about the availability of ingredients and technologies of the time in their books.

UFV Library has its own special collection of community and local cookbooks.  The Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection was established in 2015 and reflects the culinary heritage of the western Canadian provinces and two northern territories.  Discover more about the Newman collection in our research guide and online exhibit.
