Dissertation title: “‘Colonial Custard’ and ‘Pilgrim Soup’: Culinary Nationalism and the Colonial Revival”
My dissertation looks at the romanticization of colonial American food such as brown bread and baked beans during the Victorian and Progressive eras. I am currently working as a writer with a focus on American food history.
