This past week, the Indiana Food Review published an Op-Ed piece by doctoral student Ellen Ireland called “Romanticizing the Historic Diet.” Ellen interviewed me about the Markham project and Robin Danek about her experience trying a paleo diet. Although the projects are very different, she does a great job of talking about how (and why) we feel a desire to revive historic food traditions: in my case, to explore the recipes in order to better understand the past, and in Robin’s case, as a part of leading a healthy lifestyle. I really enjoyed the article and I’m excited Ellen asked me to be a part of it! Blog readers/Twitter followers, I’d love to know what you think, both about the article and about reviving historic diets!

Great news everyone! You can now subscribe to this blog on the Kindle by going to this link. It’s the only blog available on Kindle that covers culinary history, so I’m pretty excited. For Kindle users that subscribe, I would love to hear what you think–I’m very interested in learning about others’ reading experiences of blogs on computers versus on e-readers.
