This is the class blog for a final-year undergraduate module, ‘The Digital Recipe Books Project’, at the University of Essex. At the end of the year, we will have completed an online exhibition on Margaret Baker’s seventeenth-century manuscript recipe book. We are also contributors to an international transcription project with the Early Modern Recipes Online Collective. Over the year, we’ll be sharing our thoughts about recipes and recipe books, transcription and collaborative work.
