Annotated Food History Content of BC Historical Journals

We have examined three  BC historical journals for their food history-oriented content and have posting annotated bibliographies for each one.  The compilations are organized by topic and alphabetical by author. We hope that the compilations may be of interest to food history researchers looking for particular topics and also point out gaps and/or areas of potential study in BC food history.

We would also like to include a  recent cookbook collection added to the University of the Fraser Valley. The Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection was established in 2015 and is comprised of community and restaurant cookbooks published in, or about, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, B.C., the Yukon and Northwest territories. Details about the collection are available on the UFV research guide: http://libguides.ufv.ca/NewmanCollection

Many thanks to Mary-Anne MacDougall Special Collections and Information Services librarian, for this information.
