Historic Food Exploration

First off...alloo! Long time no see! I hope you are all happy and well.

I'm still having serious health health issues and my diet is crazy boring, so I tend to not think too much about meal planning and fun dishes, and I have been sticking with what will keep me out of the hospital, so I haven't really had much to share with you all. I've been digging back in to my genealogy research again when I feel up to it, and that has led me to a few cool things on youtube that I thought some of you might find interesting!

The first is a channel called Jas. Townsend & Son
He cooks recipes from, and talks about life during the 18th century. I've watched several and have been enjoying them a lot! The main channel is here:

And this is one of his vids on soldiers and food:



I've just started this one - Victorian Bakers which is a BBC production that brings four modern professionals together to explore baking in the Victorian era. I think there are 3 or 4 episodes and the first is here:



And this last one is a huge collection of historic food videos collected by Heather Randall that I'm just beginning to sort through which seems to cover a wide variety of periods in British history.
