The Recipes Project blog is a collaborative international research community that brings together and showcases interdisciplinary research on recipes across broad temporal and geographic spans. The project features case studies from across time and place: from the ancient world to China and Japan to Renaissance Italy, nineteenth-century America, and more. We cover a range of thematic areas from medicine to alchemy to art technique to food. We also provide resources, thematic series, and we highlight the wonderful ways in which community members use recipes in their teaching. Since our launch in 2012, we’ve gained a loyal readership. Over the first six months of 2020, over 25,000 unique visitors visited the site each month. The project features the work of more than sixty international researchers at all career stages, from ABD grad students to professors to public history facilitators to community members.
We are also on Facebook and Twitter, where we share the best links from around the Web on the histories of food, art, 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.
