Happy Holidays from the Louisiana Research Collection

Happy Holidays from the Louisiana Research Collection! 

Finding handwritten recipes scrawled on scrap paper makes LaRC employees especially happy. These items are unique because they provide a link to history that you can pull out of your oven. Please enjoy this selection of photographs, memorabilia, and recipes from collections, including newly added local Louisiana cookbooks, and enjoy a safe holiday season.
