WORLD WAR FOOD
It's a food fight! If you’re looking to explore food through the lens of history, take a look at World War Food. My name is Beth Rogers and I’m a professional Food Historian who is interested in learning new things about food history, culinary studies and gastrodiplomacy in fun and unconventional ways. Check out my articles and CV, look at pictures of attempts to recreate historical recipes (blog coming soon!), and feel free to get in touch with any questions.
