I’m making my peer-reviewed debut with a wee essay in the most recent issue of Gastronomica, a well-respected academic food studies journal (known for a certain artistic flair), published by University of California Press.

In this piece I wrote about my ongoing project to cook every food item mentioned in The Decameron, a tome of 100 stories, written by Boccaccio in 1353 and set in Florence, Italy during a fierce outbreak of the Black Death. This reading, eating, and photography project has been a way for me to make sense of this pandemic by diving into the literature of a different one.
