For Those who Love Historical Recipes

Ok, I admit it. I love history, as if it's news to anyone who knows me. I also love cooking historical food from various eras. I stumbled on this site about a month ago, and I must say, it's spectacular! Talk about complex, fun recipes. I've only tried one of them so far, the Venison in Callops. However I used Chicken instead of Venison, and I didn't lard the meat. It was, however, the tastiest chicken I think I've ever made. For those who are up for the challenge, and the fun of historical food, this site is for you! Check out the amazing sugar sculptures and pie moulds. It's quite amazing what one can do with food! All for now!

Well, I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. It took me a while to figure out I had to click on what I thought was the title to see the food site. Thanks.

What a neat site. Really beautiful and amazing pictures. I love the way the recipes are written in the old english spelling. I'll have to try to make something. Ummm....
Love,

I've always wanted to eat mutton. Maybe I just like saying "mutton" or maybe I have been intrigued by all those Elizabethian novels I read --

Then I just went on this website and saw what mutton actually looked like -- with oysters no less.

Maybe I'll try making a pie first and see where we go from there.
