French Club Helps Transcribe Menus

french menuThe French Club student organization has been spending time recently in the New York campus's library archives. They have been examining French menus from around the world and helping transcribe them for the digital menu collection. Club member Natasha White, a junior in the Applied Food Studies major, was inspired by a class visit to the archives and got the French Club involved.

“We loved seeing all the different international menus and how French cuisine and culture varied from country to country,” White said.

Working with the historical menus not only raised student awareness of global French culture and language, but also helped build the CIA’s online menu collection, which now numbers more than 2,600 items.
