18th Century Food

Someone shared a fun website on one of the 18th Century groups I am in, and I thought it would be a good one to share here. There is some pretty neat information there.

The website is called Food Timeline.

The description from the website is:

Ever wonder what foods the Vikings ate when they set off to explore the new world? How Thomas Jefferson made his ice cream? What the pioneers cooked along the Oregon Trail? Who invented the potato chip...and why?

Welcome to the Food Timeline! Food history presents a fascinating buffet of popular lore and contradictory facts. Some people will tell you it's impossible to express this topic in exact timeline format. They are correct. Most foods we eat are not invented; they evolve.

They have some of their own information on Colonial Wedding Cakes. And also some link outs to good sites with recipes like one on Firecakes.

I found this site to be very interesting not only for our period, but also just for the history of food in general. I may pull some more specific things from here in the future, but be sure to check them out!
