Scope and content
This series contains research files compiled by Armstrong during the course of her food research. The files primarily represent multiple visits to Quebec towns and regions. The series is divided into two subseries: (1) Quebec regional food research and (2) Food research subject files. The files in the first subseries are composed primarily of ephemera and research notes collected or created during her travels in various Quebec regions during research food and foodways. These include brochures about and/or published in various regions in Quebec, largely related to agro-tourism; business cards and pamphlets from restaurants, bakeries, and food producers; correspondence with chefs and proprietors, often with recipes attached; clippings; and Armstrong's travel or itinerary notes. Some of the largest files are related to Charlevoix, the Eastern Townships, Lanaudière, and Île d'Orleans.The second subseries contains research materials, notes, correspondence, conference presentations, ephemeral publications, etc. on specific topics, such as "Maple Syrup Pie" and "Cheese" or from particular conferences or events (such as "Culinary Historians Conference, May 2009").
The series also contains a small amount of material pertaining to conferences attended and general cooking ephemera collected by Armstrong, such as loose recipes.
