For the 5th Europeana Food and Drink Project Management Meeting, Work Package Leads met in London to update on all activities happening within the project. The meeting was a good opportunity to identify challenges and opportunities for the next six months and decide on next steps and actions. The focus hereby lay on time schedule and upload of the project’s content base, including food and drink related items from all participating content partners. Public engagement events and the ongoing launches of the products are further highlights which have been discussed.

Food and Drink Content is live on Europeana!

Since end of November, part of the Europeana Food and Drink content is live and available through Europeana. Continously, more of our digitised objects and images related to Europe`s rich food and drink heritage will go on Europeana. The collections of the project partners conceal a wide range of various objects related to eating and drinking habits, rituals, preparation instructions and cultivation techniques. All of these are enhanced by the dimensions of time, circumstances and cultures and are captured in images, scripts, text and even audio and visual media.

London Local Pubs – Past and Present

This November we celebrated both online and offline the launch of the book and ebook “London Local Pubs – Past and Present”, one of the applications created within Europeana Food and Drink. In collaboration with local pubs and the National Brewery Heritage Trust, the project partners Historypin and Fratelli Alinari Istituto di Edizioni Artistiche SpA developed this piece of London pub memories, telling the stories of 52 pubs steeped in social history. Stunning historic images and anecdotes shared by regulars, staff and pub landlords at community archiving gatherings were hand-picked, drawn together by the author Adrian Tierney-Jones.
