Oral recipes, ancient recipes and changing food traditions are being documented on their unique open-access website.
Three young women, Ananya Pujary, 21, Muskaan Pal, 20 and Khushi Gupta, 21, have set up an open-access archive of community cookbooks, recipes and culinary traditions from across India that makes one wonder why this hasn’t been done before.
All students at Pune’s Flame University, Pujary and Pal (third-year psychology) and Gupta (marketing) took up this project in April 2019, as a part of an introduction to digital humanities course. “I’m from the Tuluva community in Karnataka. I initially wanted to archive my community’s recipes as it’s mostly been passed down the generations orally,” Pujary says.
The women behind the project: Muskaan Pal, Khushi Gupta and Ananya Pujary. The students of Pune’s Flame university set up the website as part of an introduction to digital humanities course.
