Petits Propos Culinaires is the pre-eminent food history magazine, started in 1980 by Alan Davidson, Elizabeth David, and other writers in food history, restaurants and enjoyment. Food experts contained within its covers in the 2020s include Peter Brears, who writes on Yorkshire baking and traditional foods from all around the United Kingdom, Mary-Anne Boermans, and Sally Grainger whose works on Roman cookery are well known. We look forward to publishing this journal well into the 2030s and beyond.
PPC 126 contains articles ranging from black pudding to the first cook book by a black American woman, Mrs Russell, and between these two articles a memoir of working and experiencing food in the markets of Turkey in the 1980s. Also an article on William Turner, not the painter, but an English Protestant of the 16th century. His writings on natural history give us unique insights into early herbalists and their knowledge of the healing properties of plants.
