The Woman’s Century Club enjoyed an interesting presentation by Jackie Williams on “Tales of a Culinary Collection, or Why I Collect What I Do”.  Jackie, a noted food historian put together a comprehensive collection of potato cookbooks which is now at the University of Washington library.  All the food for the luncheon was made with potatoes – even the brownies!
