Melanie Bump, Curator of Collections and Exhibits at the Morris County Park Commission’s Division of Cultural and Environmental Resources presents: Savory Remembrances in the Books.

As we look into the New Year, we can seek comfort and joy in the recipes and cookbooks in the Elizabeth D. Kay Rare Books Collection. Cookbooks and receipts have been passed down for centuries, feeding families, children, and royalty and even curing the sick using botanical recipes. Through the pages of these carefully kept handwritten journals and illustrated bound volumes, we can hear the voices of past cooks who turned to their gardens for guidance. Join the Curator of Collections and Exhibits as we savor the botanical and culinary insight in the pages of the 18th and 19th-century rare books and remember the people who made and used them.

Following the program, we’ll celebrate with our usual spread of delicious savory and sweet treats, accompanied by coffee, tea, and wines.

The event is free for Members, but you must register as attendance is limited to 100 people.

Registration will close at 12:00 Noon on Thursday, January 4.
