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.
