Kentucky's Cookbook Heritage

University Press of Kentucky

After the Civil War there was a dramatic increase in the number of cookbooks published. Many of these were community cookbooks compiled as part of Civil War–related fund-raising efforts. Another important factor creating a greater demand for cookbooks was the loss of household kitchen staff, once they were emancipated. This period also saw the increased use of wood-burning cookstoves and the first appearance of branded, packaged food products.
