Muse of the Week: Historical Cuisine
Life has had a tendency to get rather depressing lately, from unrest and economic ruination abroad to protests and gridlock at home. Awareness and engagement remains important, and historical context critical -- but every now and then it is healthy to take a break and enjoy a less topical walk through world, or in this case, primarily Western, history. I found a fun blog the other day called The Old Foodie and I highly recommend taking a look at it. About five times a week this British-born Australian woman posts fascinating reflections on historical food ingredients and practices, antique recipes and fun quotations. Enjoy!
