With a desire to make the 20th century come alive for our children, we dug out old family cookbooks and went hunting further afield to collect recipes from each decade. We were studying HIS Story of the 20th Century and wanted to feast along the way. We created menus for each decade and sometimes we went out to eat for Vietnamese noodles or Chinese food. However, we had the most fun cooking up our own version of 20th century food!

Would you like to add tasty treats and fun to your 20th century world history studies? Learn history the fun way by eating your way through the 20th Century. This cookbook is part of the HIS Story of the 20th Century series and goes decade by decade, chapter by chapter right along with HIS Story of the 20th Century textbook and workbooks. You will find recipes and menus to use at home or in your homeschool c0-op.
