The Start to a Merry Feast

 Permanent link

Thanksgiving can be a stressful time of year. With in-laws coming into town, traveling and preparing large meals, a Kappa may find herself in a pinch. Luckily, Kappas past are here to help! Throughout the week, we will be building a meal from Kappa cookbooks that we have procured over the years.

Recipe Books

Today, we feature hors d’oeuvres and beverages from The Kappa Key to Cookery, a recipe book compiled by Gamma Omega, Denison,  in 1940. This handwritten recipe book features recipes from several notable Kappas, including Clara O. Pierce, Ohio State, Executive Secretary from 1929–1969. Several copies of this recipe book are housed in the archives at Kappa Kappa Gamma Headquarters.

Clicking on the recipe image will open a PDF document with a printable recipe card.

Some of these recipes give full directions, some are missing oven temperatures and some ingredients use nomenclature that is not easily recognizable by today’s standards. For the recipe cards, we used the literal translation from the recipe books, rewording only a few things to make the recipe comprehensible.
