1893 World’s Fair Souvenir Cook Book.
Here’s a full page out of the 1893 World’s Fair Souvenir Cook Book. For those of use who may not recall, the 1893 World’s Fair was held in Chicago, and called the Columbian Expedition, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus. The recipes were authored by all of the ladies participating in the fair committees. Under each contribution, you’ll see the lady’s signature and hometown.

Here’s to Fall!
