UCLA William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
Dr. Marissa Nicosia’s project sets out to find, investigate, update, cook, and write about recipes from manuscript recipe books produced between 1600 and 1800. In this talk, she will share recipes and explain how she finds, researches, updates, and, most importantly, cooks from recipe books. She will also discuss how this embodied research practice informs her approach to early modern English literature.
The lecture is free to attend with advance registration.
