Due to the popularity of last year’s visit, we are delighted to offer another chance to see the Schlesinger Library’s impressive culinary collection, which consists of almost 15,000 titles related to culinary professions, gastronomy, the history of domestic life and management, and the role of food in history and culture. Join us as we investigate the origins of this internationally renowned collection and enjoy a rare opportunity to view several of its iconic works.
