Hey ma, look what I can do with the internet

January 25, 2010

Tell you what they ate in restaurants in 1941 apparently. There is a collection of menus in the Rare Book Room at the LA Public Library that’s been digitized that I’m digging today. You can search for more than that of course but I’m going to spend tomorrow cooking a meal out of what I would have ordered in 1955 or another such arbitrary old-timey year.


I’ll cook a meal to order if you tell me a year and menu and items within.
