Máirtín Mac Con Iomaire introduces a new oral history project

On becoming a Trustee two years ago I was asked to develop an oral history project relating to the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery. This is an ongoing project that will grow over time and hopefully help capture some of the backgrounds, stories, philosophies and memories of various symposiasts over the years, be they former trustees, organisers, or general attendees who are willing to share their experiences publicly.

The first nine interviews have been transcribed and both the audio and the transcription are available at the link here
