This project has been made possible thanks to generous offers of time, expertise and support from:
Dr Annie Gray is a historian specialising in food and dining history for the period 1700-1900. She has acted as a historical consultant for numerous television shows, including The Great British Bake Off, and is a regular panelist on Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet.

The ‘Cooking Up History’ volunteer group
Our ‘Cooking Up History’ volunteers have been busy recreating recipes from our Cookbook in a modern kitchen. We’ll be sharing their experiences over the coming year on the Cookbook of Unknown Ladies blog.
Kensington & Chelsea’s Local Studies team generously provided us with access to their digital book scanner for this project
