IMG_0012Hello, my name is Jessica.

Cooklore is the space where I explore the complexities of our social relationship with food. As a sociology graduate student, long-time restaurant worker, and home cook I am fortunate to have my passion for food intersect my life across a range of personal and professional sites.

I spent much of my childhood in the kitchens of my mother and grandmother on Cape Breton Island, and currently divide my time between St. John’s, Newfoundland and Victoria, British Columbia. My doctoral research examines reading and eating practices in island cities on Canada’s east and west coasts. My writing has appeared in CuiZine: The Journal of Canadian Food Cultures, The Canadian Review of Sociology, and The Canadian Journal of Sociology. All of the pictures featured on this site have been taken by me unless otherwise noted, and my images and text are protected by copyright.

You can reach me through email at cooklore (@) hotmail (dot) ca.

  1. Nice! Different topic for a blog. I’m a native Vancouver Islander with a family fascination with food, so I will enjoy your blog for sure.

  2. Thanks! I’m so glad you stopped by and said hello. Your blog looks lovely. I lived in southern Ontario for two years (in Kingston) and often miss the eastern end of the country!
