The Roger Smith Cookbook Conference

Roger Smith Hotel

501 Lexington Avenue

New York, NY 10017

I’m chairing a panel on cookbooks and gender with panelists Charlotte Druckman, Priscilla Ferguson, and  Barbara Haber.  The idea of this panel came out of studying 19th century Hapsburg Empire cookbooks, especially the way they explained to women what was and what was not appropriate as accompaniments for afternoon coffee/tea.  It takes place as part of a 3-day event.  For more info see the Cookbook Conference website.
