Sarah

I am a 2014 graduate of Amherst College, where she majored in Classics and Religion. After a brief tenure at Yale, I’ve decidedto pursue freelance writing. When given the opportunity, I love to write about history, food, and the history of food. Not incidentally, I wrote my senior honors thesis, which won the Dr. Ernest D. Daniels Latin Prize, on the topic of cannibalism in Roman literary banquets. Some of my other recent pieces have examined the significance of the graham cracker in nineteenth century evangelicalism and the pervasiveness of Jell-O salads. I am also the author of the longest (and likely only) academic study of the 1987 film Mannequin.
I have also enjoyed dabbling in food science and molecular gastronomy. During my senior year, as a final project for a food science course, I made garum (a Roman condiment similar to ketchup, if ketchup were made from putrid smelt) in one of Amherst’s chemistry labs and incorporated it into a pear patina. I was rewarded with an A+, which confuses me to this day.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy taking on strange baking experiments and mailing the results to my friends around the country and occasionally around the world. Some of my other obsessions include sewing custom cross-stich pieces, playing an inordinate amount of video games, and trying to relive the 1990’s.
