Dear readers, supporters, and contributors:
Thank you for all of your interest, your engagement, and your brilliant ideas over the past year. We had a busy but very fulfilling 2018 at the Recipes Project. In addition to a wealth of posts from contributors around the world, we featured pieces on new collections of recipe-related materials in our First Monday Library Chats; cross-posts with blogs like Res Obscura, History of Knowledge and Cooking the Archives; conference round-ups, author interviews, and book and exhibition reviews. We hosted several special series: on the senses, on hot and cold, and on teaching. Perhaps most exciting of all, we welcomed a new editor — Dr. Jess Clark — and then decided to expand the Recipes Project even further by opening a call for three additional editors as well as a larger social media team. We’ll be introducing our new editors and social media colleagues to all of you in the new year, and we can’t wait to see what kinds of exciting new perspectives, topics, and activities they bring to our Recipes Project community.
We wish you all a very happy new year!
