The Roger Smith Cookbook Conference

Just a reminder that you will be able to see some 10 of the 28 sessions live and for free on Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11, 2012. See schedule of free sessions below.

To brighten up a dreary February in 2011, a group of food scholars and cookbook writers started a cookbook conference. It was so successful that they’re doing it again this year, bigger and better.

Unfortunately, this year’s Cookbook Conference is completely sold out, and there’s a long waiting list. To make the content available to those unable to attend, ten panels on Friday and Saturday, February 10-11, 9 am-6 pm, will be webcast live. [See the schedule for these ten panels below.]  Anyone can tune in, watch the panels, and tweet questions.

In addition, all 28 panels will be filmed and will be up on the same website a week or two after the conference. The broadcast schedule is available on the conference website, as is the list of panels and bios of presenters.

Note: I’ll be presenting a brief introduction to the cookbooks and household manuals used by British women who went out to India, based on The Complete Indian Housekeeper and Cook, by Flora Annie Steel and Grace Gardiner (1888).

  3. Perhaps you should? There is the Oxford Symposium, of course, but it’s not the same thing at all. If there ever is such a one in London, please do let me know.
