Stari Grad Museum is pleased to invite you to the presentation of the book Od kuharice do književnosti, ogledi o kulinarskoj prozi (engl. “From cookbook to literature, essays on the culinary prose”) by dr.sc. Jelena Ivanišević.

Gastronomic-literary event will take place on Friday, 2 November at 6pm in the bistro Kod Damira, Stjepan Radić Square 5 in Stari Grad.

…By placing her analytical reading of culinary and gastronomic texts between the currently dominant research platform of food studies, which unites the approaches of various scientific disciplines and the literary and historical understanding of a certain literary phenomenon, the author succeeds in describing the emergence and development of what we understand today under culinary literature…
(from the review by dr. sc. Jadranka Grbić Jakopović)
