Early Modern Recipes Online Collective (EMROC) and The Recipes Project

September 22, 2014

EMROC HomepageReading and transcribing recipes from UTSA’s manuscript cookbooks over the past several weeks led me to stumble upon two related websites that I suspect readers of La Cocina Histórica’s would also enjoy. First, The Early Modern recipes Online Collective (EMROC) describes projects involving transcription of manuscript recipe books written by four 17th century English women. The Recipes Project is an independent, but related blog featuring posts about historical recipes (for food, medicine, and more), transcription, teaching with recipes, and culinary collections. Three posts I particularly enjoyed include:

 Transcribing in Baby Steps by Jennifer Munroe

Pen, Ink, and Pedagogy by Amanda E. Herbert

Old-Fashioned Recipes, New-Fashioned Kitchens: Technology and Women’s Recipe Collecting in the Nineteenth Century by Rachel A. Snell
