FSU Special Collections & Archives Presents: The Great Rare Books Bake Off 2021

Last year FSU Special Collections & Archives spent the month of November showing off recipes from our digital collection of cookbooks and herbals. We welcomed guest contributors who shared recipes from their personal family collections, and modernized historic recipes, and we baked…a lot!

With more students, faculty, and staff back on campus this Fall we wanted to encourage everyone to try a quick recipe from our collection. They aren’t complicated, they don’t have crazy ingredients, but they sure are interesting. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t turn out as planned, we want to see your pictures!

How can you participate?

1. Bake: Pick a recipe from this post and give it a try
