Another area of interest is in Historic Foodways. I currently serve as head of the Midwest Open-Air Museum Coordinating Council's Historic Foodways Resource Group. See http://www.momcc.org for more information.
My two current research projects in this area are on aprons and school lunch in a one-room school. My apron research is still in the very early stages, but if you or someone you know went to a one-room school, please fill out my survey. Click on Lunch Survey in the dropdown menu above.
One of my past projects is a list of the actual historic cookbooks used at living history sites. This list formerly found a home on the MOMCC website, but the current list has additions to the one that was there. It is a large file.
Another past project was on food safety in museums. Click on the page on the left for more information.
I have also served as an assistant editor on two fundraising cookbook projects. It's harder than it looks to turn out a quality product. For advice, contact me or see:
Uthoff, Sarah and Susan Uthoff. “How to Cash in on a Quality Cookbook.” ALHFAM Bulletin 34.1 (2004): 7 – 9.
