With 55,000 books in its library, NYU, my alma mater, has the largest collection of food books in the United States. Fales Library on the third floor of the Bobst Library houses special collections and recently amassed 21,000 food books from the private collection of restaurateur George Lang. In 2003, the director of the food studies program at NYU started the collection of food books. The first donation, consisting of 7,000 books, was that of Associated Press food editor Cecily Brownstone. Since then, they have received many donations, including the complete set of Gourmet magazines, all 3,500 of them. This collection definitely puts NYU’s food studies program on the map, and helps to show the importance of the topic that had, in the past, endured a negative stigma as “women’s work.”
