By way of Fr. Z, we come upon Pass the Garum...and by way of that, we find Time Travel Kitchen. Interesting glimpses into culinary history, and they're giving me ideas for my own kitchen experiments(which generally involve biohazard suits and the CDC being notified, but I'm trying).
Remember, folks, no matter how ugly things get, we're gonna have to eat until the Lord calls us home. Knowing how to cook old-school (in the case of PtG, really old-school) could be a very useful skill.
