About: Tiffany Payne Malkin

I'm a fourth-year student in the Art History Department at UCLA. I worked as a production designer for over twelve years, have traveled extensively, and have an ongoing interest in antiquities. Now, my exposure to the Byzantine experience has assisted in rounding out my aesthetic education. I'm fascinated by the role of jewelry in Byzantine culture, as well as its design elements; both influence my own ideas about contemporary jewelry design.

      Barley was used to brew beer and bake bread in the Middle Ages.

      This recipe was put together from manuscripts about early English bread-making. 

      Happy Thanksgiving!
