Cookit, The History Cookbook This is a very nice little site with historical English recipes. Some look very tasty, others less so but it is a nice view on how food has changed over the centuries, at least in England. One obvious difference is the bits we throw away, other than in hot dogs there are a lot of bits we just don’t eat anymore that once were considered delicacies and still are in many parts of the world.
Where is the Chinese fortune cookie really from? Not from China but from Japan apparently. Neat story, apparently became popular during the Second World War so I can see why the Japanese history of it was quietly forgotten.
