The Library created a cookbook of the favourite recipes gathered from the UFV faculty and staff
as a fundraiser for the Newman Collection. In it you will find recipes and stories as diverse as the staff and faculty who submitted them. From baked salmon tails, to Wareneki, to Rabbit, Madrid Artist-Style or Figgy Duff and Nanaimo Bars, there is something for everyone.
Partial proceeds from the sale of Good Food Tells a Story will go towards building the Newman Collection.

On September 24th, 2015, the UFV and broader community gathered together for a celebration of UFV Library's new Special Collection - the Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection. We unveiled our new UFV Cookbook of favourite recipes, Good Food Tells a Story, as well as celebrating the MSA Museum's publication of Abbotsford: from Village to City.

If you have old Western Canadian cookbooks, or your grandmother's handwritten recipe book, please consider donating them to the University of the Fraser Valley's Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection. Old Menus, brochures, and recipes are invaluable for scholars and culinary professionals. We will preserve them and make them available to future researchers.
