New beginnings for the 'History is Served' blog

We here in Historic Foodways would like to wish all of you a great new year! Because the New Year is a time of new beginnings, we’d like to tell you about some changes we’ll be making to our blog to better meet the interests of our audience: You!

We will continue to post new recipes, and keep the old ones available to you. In addition, we plan to include more discussions on the history of food and drinks, as well as more photos and other visuals about our ongoing projects and programs in Historic Foodways.

Watch our video on the new History is Served blog.

Here’s where we need your help: We’d like to hear from you about the topics you’d like to see us tackle and any other suggestions you have for the blog.  What are you curious about? What are you interested in? Please use the comment section here to tell us your thoughts and suggestions for topics.

The best way to learn about History Foodways, of course, is to come and visit us in the kitchens. But we hope the new blog will be the next best thing to being there.

    Really enjoy this blog, and love making the recipes at home and at reenactments. I would love to see more open-hearth cooking techniques. Also cooking with what is in season or available at the various times of the year.

    I love the blog…since most people in colonial times lived very simply, I’d like to learn more about the types of “one pot” meals most people ate along with recipes for such dishes adapted for today’s use.

    Also, everyday, poor man’s bread or baked goods recipes and how prepared.
