Presented by Louise M. Hanson

Community cookbooks have carried the stories of Kansas women over the years, sharing sentiments of home, family, and faith. This talk provides a survey of Kansas cookbooks from 1874 to the present, which reveal not only changes in foodways but also poems, prayers, personal reflections, and histories. These humble publications show that food, home, community, and faith were the foundation upon which Kansas women constructed their lives.
