On a Crusade for food and kitchen – research on foodstuff and kitchens during the Crusader Period between East and West
The kitchen of the Crusader period (both figuratively and in the actual sense, the room in which cooking is done) has never been thoroughly researched. Those publications dealing with the food culture of the Crusader period do not go beyond the geographical scope of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. But a comparison between recipes, food and cooking in the countries of origin of the Crusaders and their new home in the southern Levant holds unimagined potential. A project "On a Crusade for food and kitchen – research on foodstuff and kitchen of the Crusader Period between East and West" aims to evaluate the interactions between the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem and Europe on a culinary level and to understand the background to cross-cultural mechanisms of acceptance, fusion or rejection.
