RECIPE SEARCH? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN NYU

NYU's Fales Library recently inherited a 3,500 volume cookbook collection from Gourmet magazine. This brings the total number of cookbooks in the collection to about 55,000, per Marvin Taylor, director of Special Collections at the Fales Library.

But it's not only cookbooks that the cookery collection archives. They have books and pamphlets and artifacts, and -- though just started in 2003 -- they now have the largest food studies collection in the United States.

To read more about their holdings, or do some digging in the online catalog, visit the Fales Library website here. SFA friends in the New York area will also appreciate the helpful list of other cookery archives in NYC at the bottom of the page.
