The Recipes Project has hosted a number of thematic series over the years. These clusters of posts highlight recent trends in studies of historical recipes and are guest-edited by specialists in the field. We invite you to take a look and explore the myriad of ways in which scholars and researchers in a variety of disciplines use the humble recipe to explore the past.
Before moving to our current “issue” format, from 2014–2019 we frequently invited Guest Editors to host series of posts related to a single topic or theme. These guest series are still searchable in our archive and are archived in order of date at the Guest Edited Series page.
In 2022, our research assistant Juliette Carbonnier systematically recategorized the 1000+ posts in our archive so that thematically-related posts could be brought together post facto as series. Some of these thematic series can be viewed via the drop-down menu at the top right of the page, while many more are visible under the “Categories” menu on the left-hand sidebar.
