Program Announcement: Depression-Era Dining (Brown-Bag Lunch Series)
Bring your lunch and join us in the Library Program Room (Terrace Level) on Wednesday, March 18, at 12:00 noon, for the topic, "Depression Era Dining." Hardships during the Great Depression dictated changes in every way of life, including diet. Housewives worked hard to create nutritious and filling meals for their families on very tight budgets. Cooks gathered recipes from the newspaper, from magazines, and from the latest in technology - the radio. Kitchens became smaller and more efficient. We'll take a look at some of the cookbooks of the era, and at some of the notable food authors and household names who got their start during the 1930s. We'll also look back at some of the popular recipes of the day. To register, call the Library at 419-625-3834.
