The Domestic Dairy
The Domestic Dairy is an edited collection of papers from the Leeds Symposium on Food History and Traditions in 2006 and 2015. These provide a series of alternative views of British dairy farming from the medieval period onwards, and include examinations of artefacts and the built environment, as well as considering less tangible subjects, including the decline of sheep dairying, the forgotten dairy traditions of Scotland, and pre-modern production of rennet for cheese-making.
The Leeds Symposium on Food was founded in 1986 by C. Anne Wilson (author of Food and Drink in Britain) and a group of like minded historians, to examine the food traditions of the British Isles.
The collection included papers by Mark Dawson, Ivan Day, Adam Balic, Laura Mason, Peter Brears and John P. Gauder.
The collection is edited by mark Dawson and Janet Pickering.
