The Canadian Community Cookbook Collection contains over 250 community cookbooks, culinary textbooks, and company publications related to food products dating from 1888 to the early 2000s. It was donated to Special Collections in 2021 by Dr. Ian Mosby, a faculty member from TMU’s Department of History.
TMU Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections are featuring an assortment of cookbooks on their blog, as well as in the display case on the 4th floor of the Libraries. The display and blog highlight the wide range of genres within culinary publications.
We hope that these windows into Canadian culinary history, and especially the festive recipes, will inspire you to try making a new dish, or watch the Great Canadian Baking Show during the winter break!
