A visit with 90 year old Mrs Elsie Della Franca is never left empty handed. The white beans on the right she called Fagoli Spagnoli & the beautifully pattern beans on the left she couldn't recall. As you can imagine, Fagoli Spagnoli had quite the tale of their origin. Seeds of family story & place. #karrihillbuckwheat #pembertonwa #culinaryhistory

There are thousands of stories buried in our own records. Our colleague in Archives, Sarah Nerney, unearthed the story of Lena Richard, a rising star in the culinary world who was persuaded to spend a few years showing off her talents in Williamsburg in the 1940s.

Our long-time followers know how much we love this set of 1831 lithographs (published in Baltimore) of people formed from objects. This is the "Fruit seller." We have previously posted the librarian and the conchologist, but this one seemed appropriate for the #CHAViC15 summer seminar this week -- love that focus on food! #culinaryhistory

Culinary lore has it that sauce beárnaise was created by the same chef who invented pommes soufflées. Chef Collinet, this Beef Tenderloin is for you. #culinaryhistory #beeftenderloin

Breakaway of the early ripening Cheshire we made 2 weeks & 5 days ago. We used a recipe that combined the 1917 recipe from CW Walker-Tisdale & Walter Woodnut & information gleaned from the college notebooks from Lucy Appleby & Sarah Walley. Thanks to @applebyscheese - inspiring the amateurs!! We'll bring some up this weekend for you. The long keeping Cheshire we made simultaneously will be ironed in October. #cheeseexperiments #cheshirecheese #rawmilk #culinaryhistory

Finally got myself a library card.!! Time to bulk up on some knowledge #socialactivism #culinaryhistory

A recent addition: Lobster Caponata with Artichokes alla Giudia & Coral. "Alla giudia" means in the Jewish style, and refers to fried artichokes, one of the best known Roman-Jewish foods. || #nyc #delposto #culinaryhistory

One of my favorite features at the fort! To think that French soldiers were using this cooking technology three decades before it appeared in an 18th-century American genteel household really just blows my mind! William Hamilton's Woodland estate in what is now West Philadelphia was the first known household in America to have a French style "cook top" stove (5 burners fed by one fire) in his kitchen cellar, which allowed for more controlled heat to prep delicate dishes and sauces. This type of technology was being used almost three decades prior by French soldiers in camp kitchens like the one seen here at Fort Carillon (Ticonderoga). #culinaryhistory #cookingtechnology #hamiltonskitchen #foodhistorian #bonmange #fortticonderoga @woodlandsphila

Introducing my mixed mushroom and basil pesto. The ancient Mayans believed one of the ingredients pictured here possessed supernatural powers.

Excited to have been a resource for @platemagazine's Caribbean food issue alongside @carloscuisine & other local food voices. Here's a taste of the article...
One of the first groups to immigrate to Miami were Bahamians, who arrived via boats and rafts in the early 1800s. “They not only brought ingredients from the Bahamas, but recognized products already in existence, and set that food movement forward to teach people from the north how to use these products and deal with the soil. People coming to Florida didn’t even know what a mango was,” Baca explains. Besides mangos, they cooked with Rangpur limes, soursop, Jamaican apples and other fruits indigenous to the South Florida swampland. But as other cultures migrated to Florida in the 1900s, the bounty of the tropical terroir was overshadowed by Americanized versions of these transplanted cuisines. “[The cuisine] was all about the land, but it started to change to American-Jewish or American-Chinese, so that care about eating locally was lost,” says Baca. Even areas like Little Havana evolved; Bahamians were actually there first, followed by a kosher community. “Now other Latin American countries are coming, and it’s becoming less Cuban,” says Baca. “Each time a new group comes in, they change a neighborhood or part of Miami and the way people eat. And in that process, cuisines get lost.”

Bengali sandesh is said to have been created by confectioner Paran chandra Nag, who opened a sweetshop in 1826, bowbazar, calcutta. Some says the making of sandesh was heavily influenced by Portuguese fondness of cottage cheese introduced in Bengal during 16th century. (Source: oxford companion of sugar and sweet.

Dying to get out of the office and home to read my new book. Reminds me of primary school on library day. I'm still the same geeky child, only taller.
