What’s in a Recipe? Reading Early Modern Recipe Books

In early modern households, families collected culinary and medicinal knowledge in recipe books. Taking a manuscript at the Folger Shakespeare Library (Washington DC) as a starting point, this project will use an early modern recipe book to explore questions about ecology, food, medicine, and women’s history.
