BLOG: Researching Food History
This historic cooking web site contains thousands of links pertaining to open hearth, bake oven, wood stove and other pre WWI forms of cooking and related subjects, with more than 1,000 online historic cookbooks and about 300 museums with cooking demonstrations. Numerous categories include glossaries ,
period images of cooking ,
stew stoves ,
recipe index , and
historic Measurements .
I am in the process of changing the format of the website to more information and fewer links, so in the interim, if you find a link not working, copy the museum name or book title and paste on a search. I post articles with pictures on my blog Researching Food History and images on Pinterest. Patricia Bixler Reber
