The Culinary Historians of Southern California will hold its annual used cookbook sale on Aug. 21 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hollywood Farmers Market, at Ivar and Selma avenues. Magazines, menus and other ephemera will also be for sale. The Daily Mirror test kitchen has been inactive for some time, but we do enjoy picking through old cookbooks when we find them and years ago we had a particular soft spot for family recipe boxes we sometimes found in thrift stores. One can discover quite a bit of history in a family’s recipes. We may just have to pay a visit and see what we find!
