An excellent source for food bibliographies is the site www.foodbibliography.eu . The project is a collaboration between Villa “I Tatti” (the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies) and the European Institute for Food Culture and History in Tours

The Food Bibliography is a dynamic database which provides a searchable source of bibliographic materials for researchers in the field of food history and, more generally, food studies.  There are over 12,700 citations in eight different languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese and Dutch). As the site’s homepage notes, “Special attention has been devoted to areas that are not usually covered by on-line library catalogues: articles appearing in journals, papers printed in conference proceedings, etc.”

The Food Bibliography is searchable by title, author, and key words. Students should note though that summaries or abstracts are not provided, and the sources lean more towards the academic than the popular.
