Tuesday Talk: An 18th Century Cooking Challenge

September 10, 2019
From: 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

What can Hannah Bloomfield’s handwritten recipe book from 1765 tell us about cooking and eating in the 18th century? We will explore this question while studying her life and recipes using her manuscript cookbook. Manuscript cookbooks are handwritten books containing recipes deliberately selected by the author, and carefully transcribed into a personal book. These books offer another way of understanding past lives and foodways, and also provide insight into the social and economic status of the middle and upper classes in early America.

Speaker: Carrie Blough, Associate Registrar/Assistant Curator
