WILLIAMSBURG — What did Williamsburg’s 18th-century residents eat — and how did they cook it?
A dive into the recipes section of Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s blog can reveal just that.
The historic foodways staff shared 18th-century recipes — including demonstration videos in 18th-century kitchens — then translated the recipes into 21st-century terms so you can try them in your kitchen.
Four new recipes will hit the blog this month including Chicken Surprise and Carrot Pudding.
Check them out here, then tell us: what’s your favorite historic recipe?
