We are an international group of scholars interested in the history of recipes, ranging from magical charms to veterinary remedies. Old recipes can tell us a lot about the past, such as how medicines were prepared, when certain foods became popular, or why ingredients might be magical. Join us as we explore the weird and wonderful world of recipes!
We are on Facebook and Twitter, where we share the best links from around the Web on the histories of food, medicine and more! We also have a group Zotero page, which is where we share a bibliography of historical recipe collections and recipe-related secondary readings.
