Dining aboard the Transatlantic Ship
Hi! I am starting this blog to share what I am learning about the history of food and dining aboard Transatlantic ships in the nineteenth century. There's very little on this topic out there, and so a lot of my research has been based on primary texts, from memoirs and newspaper articles to contemporary advertisements and ship archives. At this point, I am at the half-way point in writing a book on this topic and would like to communicate with fellow maritime and food enthusiasts as I proceed. Stay tuned!
