Graduate student Anny Gaul was awarded the 2015 Cherwell Food History Studentship by the American Friends of the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery. The award included a research grant, which Anny used to travel to the libraries and book markets of Cairo in support of a research project on the emergence of the modern domestic kitchen in Egypt in the early twentieth century. She presented her preliminary findings at this year’s Symposium, giving a talk titled “Fava Beans and Bechamel: Inventing the Modern Egyptian Kitchen.”

Anny is also the recipient of a 2015-16 Pre-Dissertation Research Grant from the American Research Center in Egypt, which will support additional research in Cairo.
