Liz Williams, president of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, says that they’ve lost over half of their cookbook collection to the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina. They are working hard to transform tragedy into opportunity by taking on the ambitious project of rebuilding the museum’s library to be our country’s most complete repository of books, booklets, manuscripts and documents about Southern food and drink. In order to accomplish this, the museum needs as many cookbooks as they can get.

The museum is not only seeking cookbooks about the American South, but also volumes from areas that have influenced Southern cooking. This means all new and used cookbooks, in all conditions (food-spattered and beat up is just fine), from all over the world. They’re seeking everything from professionally written cookbooks and culinary histories to community cookbooks, pamphlets and just about anything else you can think of, even individual recipes.

Here is the address for (fully tax-deductible) donations: Southern Food & Beverage Museum, 1 Poydras Street, #169, New Orleans, La., 70130: Attn. Liz Williams. The Web site is www.southernfood.org.
