I am currently undertaking PhD research at Falmouth University. My research project is concerned with the interplay between cookery book writer and illustrator and the books they collaborated on. The years I am focusing on – 1954 (the year controlled food rationing ended) to 1965, provided some of the most influential and inspiring cookery books. This period also marked the rise in cookery programmes and ever increasing independence for women. I have currently begun a new blog, which will enable my research to reach a wider audience, and incite response from fellow illustrators, writers, academics and interested parties.
