Macaroni Pudding and a Good Cake: Conserving K-State’s Manuscript Cookbook Collection

Recipt Book - Miss Jemima Roberts 1806

Kansas State University Libraries’ Macaroni Pudding and a Good Cake is a two-year project that will enhance international scholarship pertaining to the history of food and medicine, women’s culture, comparative literature and epidemiology. Over 10,000 pages of manuscript cookery books dating from 1650-1896 will be available in an institutional repository as well as a crowdsourced transcription interface.

As these manuscripts are digitized, the most fragile will be selected for conservation treatment. Please make a donation toward these conservation efforts. To donate contact:
