Delighted to announce a new open-access paper “Unearthing a new food culture: fruits in early modern Ireland” by FoodCult team members Meriel McClatchie, Susan Flavin and Ellen O’Carroll. This is in Cooking with Plants in Ancient Europe and Beyond, edited by Soultana Maria Valamoti, Anastasia Dimoula and Maria Ntinou and published by Sidestone Press. We were delighted to collaborate with the ERC PlantCult Project on this.
On 2nd February, Susan will present a talk on ‘Bere and Brewing History’ at the IBH seminar. The seminar is focussed on working with heritage barley, and the talk will share the FoodCult teams’s experience of recreating sixteenth century beer with bere.
