This, the twenty-eighth Leeds Symposium, focuses on technological advances both large and small in the English kitchen.
I am in New York on 2nd April to give a lecture to the Culinary Historians of New York, but will sadly miss the Roger Smith conference as I have to fly to Ohio State University the next day to give a lecture at the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies on 4th April. Maybe I will get a chance to meet some of you at one of these two venues.
