Cooking up Salzburg
food, Salzburg, baroque cuisine
The project overview
The aim of the study is to demonstrate, via a detailed analysis of contexts and interrelations, the significance of food and diet as central elements in the constitution of culture, society, and economy. The rediscovery and local as well as regional contextualization of a historical cuisine provides important opportunities for engagement between academic research and the wider public with regard to gastronomy and tourism as well as current debates on culture and identity.
How to participate?
Citizen scientists will enter data into a specialised historical recipe database, thus achieving an additional working capacity for data entry. Subsequently, the database will allow for comparisons of regional to supra-regional dishes.
What happens to the contributions of citizen scientists?
The transcribed recipes will be integrated into the historical recipe database and will be open to the public.
