About The Blog
Ever wondered what people in the past ate? How they really lived? With a well-thumbed copy of The Art of Dining under one arm, I’m setting off to find out. Hopefully we’ll discover that historical food was more appetising and less monotonous than people normally think. To get started I’ll be participating in the Historical Food Fortnightly challenges (see here for more info), blogging about a new challenge each fortnight. So anyone for pease pudding?
Hi, my name is Kim. I’m an archaeology student, Sydneysider, medieval reenactor and collector of jelly moulds. My interest in foodways and social history began as a teenager, but its only since joining the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) in 2012 that I have actively begun researching and making historical food.
