Irvin Department of Special Collections
The Menu Project is the beginning of a community wide effort to record the contemporary culinary history of the Southeast, in particular that of South Carolina. This collection has been created from donations of menus from local citizens and will continue to grow over the years. While the majority of the menus come from the southeast, there are some that come from other parts of the country creating an interesting contrast between the cuisines offered in the southeast as opposed to other areas of the country. This is the beginning of an extensive digital collection of menus that will record food history and culture for future generations.
