A historic overview and a recipe found on savoringthepast.net

Food is a universal connection between people of differing cultures, locations, and ages. It’s easy to take for granted the foods we regularly enjoy, giving little thought to the origins of our favorite dishes or how they may have impacted history or evolved over time. The dinner table has always been a place for friends to gather to exchange ideas and engage in dialog ever since…well…ever since there were dinner tables.
If you are at all interested in food history, old recipes and old cooking methods this is not a blog you would want to miss – Ted
