Presentation by Dr. Cynthia Williams Resor, Foundation Professor, College of Education, Eastern Kentucky University. This program will explore the lives of Kentucky women, free and enslaved, as Resor prepares recipes from early nineteenth century cookbooks such as Lettice Bryan’s The Kentucky Housewife. Reviewing how women produced, preserved, and prepared food in pre-industrial kitchens, Resor explores the often-overlooked “women’s work” of the past and present and how teaching it can enhance our understanding of everyday Americans.
