“Dining with Jimmy” now live

May 3, 2015

Last Summer, I embarked on a project that brings my family, academic interests (cultural history), and hobbies (cooking and eating) together: re-creating the menus of James MacNeill Whistler together with my archaeologist wife and my mother-in-law, Margaret F. MacDonald, professor of Whistler Studies at the University of Glasgow.  Besides the chance to try and think through the life of a cosmopolitan artist and bon-vivant in 1870s London, it offers some interesting grounds for reflection on how we live and eat now – especially for me, another trans-Atlantic émigré.

It’s still a work in progress, but we offer it live here now: https://whistlermenus.wordpress.com/
