Cool Food Blog

Gastronomy Archaeology is a very cool food blog that explores old cookbooks and recipes from Renaissance and Early Modern cookery.  Food history is increasingly becoming more interesting to me, and I love the history in this blog.  It’s fun to see photos of how the recipes turn out.  I enjoyed oyster pye, which was of particular interest to me because I wrote an article on the oyster history in New York.  I also like reading the snippets of home remedies from the old cookbooks.  Harry Potter fans can check out an old recipe for buttered beer on the site.
