A quick shout out to another great blog: “The Devil’s Tale” (the blog of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University). They just put up a post today on one of my favorite topics: food & advertising. Check out “From Hawaiian Pie to Mustard Meringue: The Role of Test Kitchens in Modern Advertising,” which talks about a collection at the Harman Center. This is a great post, a fun topic, and I’ve had the good luck to meet the people behind this particular post, too!
The blog also has a subset for the Rubenstein Test Kitchen, which focuses on their food materials! And makes me jealous because I wish I had the time to do something similar here. If you don’t already, you should be sure to follow them!
