Culinary Historians | The Marmalade Mavens
Sunday June 20, 2021: 4:00pm to 5:30pm
From the legendary Janet Keiller, popularly credited with "inventing" marmalade in Dundee, Scotland in the 1700s, to Cooper's, Chivers and Smucker's, the world's great marmalade manufacturers have fascinating stories. Touching on marmalade history from ancient times to the present, author Sarah B. Hood weaves a compelling tale that ties in Roman cookery, medieval Persian poetry, changing attitudes towards racism, scurvy in the British Navy, Victorian labour conditions and globalization, and perhaps explains why marmalade is such an enduringly beloved commodity.
Sarah B. Hood is a journalist, book author and award-winning jam-maker who lectures on writing and the history of fashion in the Centre forArts, Design and Information Technology at George Brown College in Toronto. Her preserving cookbook, We Sure Can! How Jams and Pickles are Reviving the Lure and Lore of Local Food, was a finalist in Taste Canada, Canada's food writing awards.
