Cooking Up History

Community Outreach Archivist Danielle Afsordeh will discuss the background of historic foodways in Arkansas and how they influenced recipes generations ago, and Justin Vess will guide program attendees through cooking a historic recipe from the Butler Center’s expansive cookbook collection. After the cooking demonstration, Danielle will assist attendees in scanning their own family recipes to have digital copies to share with family and friends.

Danielle Afsordeh, Community Outreach Archivist at the CALS Roberts Library/Butler Center for Arkansas Studies and Justin Vess, Kitchen and Adult Programmer at Dee Brown Library will conduct this program at the Dee Brown Library programming kitchen.
