Well, I may just be a gigantic nerd, but, (through an article about a kerfuffle of mistaken intent,) I just discovered a YouTube channel that has 18th Century cooking/recipes/reenactments and it has to be one of the coolest things! It’s pretty popular, so many of you probably already know about it. The enthusiasm of Jon Townsend (the man who runs the page) is engaging and infectious. It’s a really interesting channel!
Why would this ever be useful? Well, #1 – curiosity and adventure, two of the most important elements in life. #2 – Well, if we must talk business… visualizing recipes and methods like these could help an author paint a setting in a historical novel, or even (my favorite) dystopian/post-apocalyptic settings where access to certain ingredients and tools may be limited.
But really, it’s mostly just really dang neat!
Alright, off to “work” I go! 😉 Hope you all have a fabulous week!
