This week DH Benelux will be held in Amsterdam. Together with Thomas Smits, I will present a paper on our work at the National Library. And with Marieke van Erp, Hugo Huurdeman, and Richard Zijdeman, I will present a poster detailing our work on constructing a recipe web.


The last few weeks, I continued work started during the HackaLOD 2018. We extracted recipes from the Allerhande website and used this data to build a method for extracting historical recipes from digitized newspapers.


Last week, the KNAW DH Lab won the HackaLOD 2018
