About Delicious History

About The Blog

Why hello there! Come in, come in.

Welcome to Delicious History – my personal homage to all that is culinary and historical. Whether the topic be the effects of rationing during wartime, the origin of chocolate, or the last meals of infamous criminals – my interest is peaked.

I hope to provide my beloved readers (i.e. – my mother) with a place that contains a few simple but key ingredients:

1 tbs historical enquiry
1 /2 cup of wit
A pinch of flavourful fun, to taste

About the Author

What to say? I’m quite an ordinary lady from the south coast of NSW.

With an Honours Degree in English Literature and History, and a Masters Degree in Museums Studies, I’m a sucker for all that is old and quite often, dead. Now I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I feel it necessary to admit that I don’t earn a living from either of these degrees. I understand if you need a minute to recover from the shock.

Pro Tip: Study accounting, kids.

My love of history aside, I’ve somehow  always managed to earn a buck through the sale and distribution of food.  Since my incredibly confident and not at all self conscious teenage years, I’ve  held the following positions:

  • Age 17 – Awkward fruit and vegetable shop assistant
  • Age 18 – 22 – Often hung over and sleep deprived takeaway shop attendant
  • Age 23 – 24 – Bitchy and underpaid waitress
  • Age 25 – Surprisingly happy chocolate shop manager

And now? I still work for the aforementioned chocolate company, but I’ve clawed my way up into an office with a decidedly uncomfortable chair. I’m living the dream.

In a Nutshell: I created this blog to indulge to my passion for writing, history and food. Admittedly, it was also for my inner historian, who at 27 still firmly believes that she should be an adventuring archaeologist because her surname is Jones.

  1. An enjoyable, erudite, and well written collection, and what’s not to like about old food, eh?

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
