  Enterprising culinary artists and fearless taste-testers at the New York State Library and New York State Archives came together to forge a series called “Tasting History.”  All recipes were discovered in the collections of the Library and Archives  and brought to fruition – including amazing meat sculptures, wartime “salads,” yummy desserts, and perhaps too much gelatin? Elizabeth Jakubowski (New York State Library) and Heather Carroll (New York State Archives) will showcase some of the recipes they found, how said recipes reflected the tastes of the times they were written, and share some of their favorites.
