Submitted by on December 14, 2016 – 8:44 amNo Comment

Frog pie in early modern English kitchensDid you know that cooks used to butcher small animals, mix up medicines and learn to read and write in the kitchen?

That’s what Wendy Wall, professor of English and director of the Kaplan Institute for the Humanities at Northwestern University, learned during her research for Recipes for Thought: Knowledge and Taste in the Early Modern English Kitchen.
