University of Glasgow alumna and current Munby Scholar in Bibliography at the University of Cambridge Dr Anke Timmermann has written a post on the Historical Recipes blog about William Hunter as a recipe collector and mentions a number of manuscripts held in the Hunterian Collection.

This is not the first time our collections have been showcased on the blog: earlier in the year, Anke wrote a piece on images in Alchemical Manuscripts, which featured manuscripts from our Ferguson collection. The Historical Recipes blog itself features a wide range of posts on the history of recipes from an international group of scholars. You can also find them on Twitter and Facebook.
