Medieval Cookbook

Site Overview

The Medieval Cookbook database was developed entirely by Catalina Macias, a Colombian student doing a European Masters in Alimentation History.

One of her fellow students, Lina Cuellar Wills, is now using Heurist to build a directory of 19th century South American Guias de Forasteros (Foreigners Guides).

Heurist’s Role

Starting from a simple database structure (Menus containing Recipes containing Ingredients) prepared by the Heurist team, and with a couple of follow-up assistance emails, the entire project took us less than three hours, and was used in a successfully completed thesis.
