How and when did food production move from the kitchen to the factory? The items in this catalogue seek to illustrate this transformation. Included are printed and manuscript materials produced by and for the food industry: handbooks, trade catalogues, advertising art, labels, photographs, and ephemera. We've divided the catalogue into the primary activities that occur 'between farm and table', stopping just short of the home or restaurant kitchen.
Spring is finally with us, and not a minute too soon. It's been another long gap since our last Fresh Arrivals, which means that there are many, many boxes of interesting culinary books and ephemera waiting to be catalogued and offered. I hope to do some serious catching up in the next months, but the garden calls too.
Thanks for looking and best to all,
