Cornmeal Gems ~1893

1893 World’s Fair Souvenir Cook Book.

Here’s another full page out of the 1893 World’s Fair Souvenir Cook Book. Throughout the book we have pictures of the ladies who helped to organize the fair and put the book together.


With each picture, you’re left wondering about how the women got involved in the project, what other events were going on in their lives, and what brought them together.

On the opposite page, we have some simple, no-frills gluten free cornmeal recipes. Definitely would need some butter and jam or honey to get these down!
