About me

Industry Education
Occupation Professor
Location Andover, MA, United States
Introduction I'm a professor of literature by day and a foodie by night. "An appealing mixture of scholar and foodie": that's what the Wall Street Journal called me in its review of my book Words To Eat By: Five Foods and the Culinary History of the English Language. I love sleuthing out why we eat what we eat and why we call it what we do. Most of all, I love it when all my interests come together: food, words, literature, history, and the stuff of daily life.
Interests Cooking & Baking, Reading & Writing, Swimming, Yoga, Cycling, Playing the piano, Spending time with my family
Favorite Music Country Music (Patsy Cline!), Opera, Blues, Classical, Female vocalists
Favorite Books The foodie part of me loves anything by Elizabeth David (most of all, The Harvest of the Cold Months). The literature professor part of me loves anything by Jane Austen, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf, and Toni Morrison.
