Hello MM readers! So I haven’t posted anything in about 6 months, and in that time I’ve moved from Iowa to Florida and started in my new PhD program. Hooray! The MM project that I was doing for the Center for the Book has wrapped up, but fear not–I’m keeping this blog up so people can still read the recipes and learn more about Markham and early modern cooking. And I’ll still be around to answer questions about the project and read your comments, so don’t be afraid to drop me a line! Even though this project is “officially” over, I still do a lot of cooking. In fact, I just started a new food blog last week to share the recipes I create and share links to other recipes that inspire me. It isn’t as specific as this project (more of a hodgepodge of all sorts of foods) but Markham has been such an inspiration that I bet he’ll pop up on there quite a bit!
I also have been meaning to share photos of our Center for the Book final project show, so here they are! These are photos of the bound book and the calligraphy I designed for the book arts portion of the project, and these are pictures of the show itself. It was so much fun, and I love that I got to showcase my work alongside some very talented and creative folks.
So even though this blog won’t be updated much anymore, I hope you still look at the recipes and the history posts for inspiration, and visit my other blog to see the wide world of food I’m exploring. Thanks again to everyone for reading and commenting on one of the most fun and exciting projects I’ve gotten to engage in, and keep in touch!
