Eating the Past: medieval menus

Tammy Proctor

On this week's Eating the Past, hosts Tammy Proctor and Jeannie Sur talk with Alexa Sand, Professor of Art History and Associate Vice President for Research at Utah State University. We'll get into medieval healthy cooking and the influence of the Catholic Church on agriculture.


With a BA in Political Science and a Master of Divinity, Jeannie Sur has been at USU since 2017. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Jeannie loves Utah for the outdoors and its mountains, although she misses the Pacific Ocean. No matter where she's lived, she's been a listener and supporter of public radio. Jeannie enjoys mid-size cities, textiles, and individual sports, especially cycling and swimming. If she could have one superpower, she would shrink furniture for easy moving. She hopes to one day have more animals and a sauna. (#lifegoals)
