Exploring history through food

Food is a wonderful storyteller and reviving a historic recipe is like stepping back in time! This online cookbook is a place for us to document recipes we try out in our historic cooking demos at the museum. We also want this online community cookbook to be a space where people share family recipes – both old and new!
