I am Lecturer in German Studies at Bangor University and recently completed my PhD in German Studies at the University of Liverpool. My thesis, Memory, Education, Circulation, Prestige: Form and Function of the Austrian Manuscript Cookery Book in the Long Eighteenth Century, focuses on the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century manuscript cookery book as object, its function, and female authorship and ownership. My publications in the history of food and cookery include ‘The Chameleon in the Kitchen: The Plural Identities of the Manuscript “Cookery Book”’, in Eve Rosenhaft, Helga Müllneritsch and Annie Mattsson (eds.), The Materiality of Writing: Manuscript Practices in the Age of Print (Uppsala 2019), ‘The ‘Who’ of Manuscript Recipe Books: Tracing Professional Scribes’, in Sjuttonhundratal: Nordic Yearbook for Eighteenth-Century Studies (2017) and ‘The Roast Charade: Travelling Recipes and their Alteration in the Long Eighteenth Century’, in Tim Berndtsson et al (eds.), Traces of Transnational Relations in the Eighteenth Century (Uppsala 2015).
