Cooking with the Historians

Today Travis Olson, Andrew Knapczyk, and Haley Gudmundson will talk to you about how British women normalized sugar by simply making sweet desserts in their kitchens in their cooking show, Cooking with the Historians. Their main arguments are; in the 17th century sugar symbolized wealth, cookbooks were written for women, and women played a major role in colonization. They will use facts from the articles and interviews on the streets to prove these arguments.
