Welcome to the Museum of Kitchenalia! Or the website of me, Emma Kay.

I live in the Cotswolds with my husband and young son. I am a post-graduate historian, archaeologist and former senior museum worker, author of 13 history books and a prolific collector of Kitchenalia. Articles include those for BBC Food, Lancashire Life, BBC History Magazine, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Times Literary Supplement, Victorian Review, Lancashire Evening Post, Love Food.com and I am a member of The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.

I have contributed historic research for a number of television production companies and appeared as a guest expert on shows for the BBC, Channel 4 and several documentaries for KBS Korean television. I have also featured regularly on BBC radio and delivered talks and demonstrations at a variety of events including both Bath and Stroud Literary Festivals.
