Culinaria: A Taste of Food History on the Prairies

 

This Event looks great and it's located at the beautiful and historical Lougheed House in West Conaught-- thought I think the house is always beautiful, the property comes alive in the Spring and Summer as the stunning gardens fill with unique and colorful foliage.
 
Collecting Culinaria: An exhibition of cookbooks and domestic manuals mainly from the Linda Miron Distad Collection.
June 18 – October 5, 2014

The Linda Miron Distad Culinaria Collection, housed at the University of Alberta Libraries, currently consists of more than 3,000 food-related texts from around the world, spanning several centuries. Collecting Culinaria features cookbooks and household guides from the collection, as well as other selected items from the Library’s holdings. The exhibition, and accompanying catalogue, highlight some of the collection’s most intriguing texts and their themes, including manuscript cookbooks, dietetics and health, and celebrity chefs. Collecting Culinaria draws from and celebrates this vast and diverse trove of social, cultural, and gastronomic history. Lougheed House is grateful to partner with the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at the University of Alberta, to bring you this exhibit.
The public is invited to the opening reception on Wednesday June 25th, from 6.30-8.30pm with cash bar, where the curators, Merrill Distad and Caroline Leiffers, will be in attendance.
