This is a lecture class focusing on methodology of identifying and redacting a period recipe from a primary source. Students will be introduced to a recipe from a period text, and they will be taught methodology for redacting that recipe with an aim towards creating a plausible recreation of the dish. Principals of experimental archaeology will be discussed and taught with an eye towards educating the students on how to track and record culinary experiments for further study and for others to be able to recreate the results of their research. Please note that this class will be recorded.
