Buen Provecho!

Do you like history? Do you like food?

Then check out UTSA Special Collections’ new blog: La Cocina Historica. Each week at La Cocina Historica, we showcase a “new” recipe from UTSA’s Mexican Cookbook Collection and celebrate Mexican cuisine and culinary history.

Ranging in date from 1831 to 2010 (bulk dates 1940-2010), UTSA’s Mexican Cookbook Collection includes over 900 English and Spanish titles featuring the cuisine of Mexico, Texas, and the Southwest. A complete listing of the collection can be found here.

The cookbooks are non-circulating; however, we welcome their use in our reading room in the John Peace Library during our regular hours or by appointment. For more information about the Mexican Cookbook Collection or UTSA Special Collections, please contact us. And, of course, you can always go to La Cocina Historica to find a selection of recipes great recipes from the past!
