For this year's interactive exhibit, we are featuring cuisine from the 1940s, which will include "ration book" specials, "meat extenders" and postwar delicacies featuring items that had been unavailable during the war years. There will also be displays of the cookbooks and pamphlets from the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives.
