The staff of the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library is pleased to invite you to an exhibition opening and talk on Tuesday, July 2nd. For An Exhibition in Six Courses: Testing Recipes from the Clark’s Manuscript Collection, Visual Resources Specialist Jennifer Bastian has curated a selection of manuscripts and books relating to 17th and 18th Century cookery. She has tested several recipes in her home kitchen and will be discussing the process and its results with attendees. Clark scholar and UCLA Phd candidate Alex Eric Hernandez, who spearheaded the brewing of an authentic Nottingham Ale especially for this event, will also be on hand to add to the discussion.
The library will be open for viewing of the exhibition from 4-7pm, and a short talk in the Outdoor Reading Room will begin at 5pm. During the reception, Jennifer and Alex will serve guests some of their Nottingham Ale.
The exhibition will be on view from June 30 until the end of September.
