The Recipes Project

The blog will consider recipes through the ages, ranging from medieval alchemical recipes to twentieth-century jellied salads. The blog is connected to a larger crowd-sourcing project (hosted at the University of Saskatchewan, but with collaborators from Germany, the U.K., and the U.S.) to transcribe recipe books, beginning with some of the seventeenth-century ones that have been digitized at the Wellcome Library, London. The project’s crowd-sourcing website and software are still in development, but we hope to make them public in the autumn 2012. We plan for the website to be a portal to several recipe-related projects. We are working towards, ultimately, extracting data from the transcriptions to trace recipes and ingredients over time and place.
