COOKBOOKS IN THE NORTH CAROLINA COLLECTION

A subject search of Cooking — North Carolina in the online catalog provides access to most titles. Many recipes from these cookbooks have been featured on the North Carolina Miscellany blog.
NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURE RESEARCH GUIDE
This research guide is designed to assist researchers in investigating the subject of agriculture in North Carolina. It covers the pre-colonial era to the 20th century and contains subtopics such as women in agriculture, farmers’ markets, and the North Carolina State Fair. This guide does not include all of the titles about North Carolina agriculture in the collection, but is intended to provide good starting points for research.
NORTH CAROLINA POSTCARDS
Starting with the subject search, researchers will find dozens of postcards on the subject of food in the North Carolina Postcard Collection and the Durwood Barbour Collection of North Carolina Postcards, both representing life in the state from about 1905 into the 20th century. For example: corn, pork (barbecue), and diners.
