About Me


My name is Juneisy, although I sometimes go by June, and the history of food, cooking and eating, ingredients and cookbooks/recipes is my passion.  I’m not sure where or when I acquired the love for this type of history but it has been part of my entire adult life.  I always thought that doing food history was nothing but a pipe dream, then I watched Good Eats and its nutritional anthropologist.  If she can do it, so can I!

I hold a PhD in United States history with a concentration in Early America. My dissertation explores food economies and trans-imperial trade and relations in the colonial North American Southeast.
