Professor Andrea Broomfield, Johnson County Community College
Broomfield is an associate professor of English at JCCC who's interests are with food history. She has recently turned specifically toward dining at sea. Her article, "The Night the Good Ship Went Down: Three Fateful Dinners Aboard the Titanic," has just been published in Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture (Nov. 2009), and she is currently at work on a new book, tentatively titled Dining in the Age of Steam: Food and Cooking Aboard the Transatlantic Steamship, 1840-1914.
Dr. Andrea Broomfield's book, Food and Cooking in Victorian England: A History, serves up tea and toast as accompaniment to the main entrée - an examination of the culture of middle- and working-class English families from 1830-1900.
