The conference has been illuminating, and I’m fascinated by the range of attendees — I’ve chatted with various curators and librarians and editors and authors, a 18th century meal re-enactor, urban restaurant researchers, a Southern tomato cookbook writer, a specialist in Abraham Lincoln’s cooking world, a medieval historian, several recipe indexers, white paper writers, and a collector of old copper cookware. Some panels are being live-broadcasted here. I hope they’re planning to archive these panels, as I’ve chosen mine based on an assumption I’ll be able to watch more later.
ETA: Check out more details and a link to my photos of Chinatown and the Brooklyn Museum on this post.
Not interested in the conference? Come walk around outside with me and look in store windows.
