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. So anyone for pease pudding?
Hi, my name is Kim. I’m a historical archaeologist, 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.
