If you’ve followed my food writing around for awhile, you know I’m a food history geek. Go the the History section at http://margaretmcarthur.com/ to see how deeply psyched I am at this part of the food world.
I’m thrilled to introduce you to The History Chef at http://lincolnslunch.blogspot.com/. The blogger is Suzie Evans, JD, Phd, mother, and her goal “is to help parents and kids learn how to cook together, learn about history together, and hopefully help them create many great memories and meals together.”
It’s a gorgeous site, a thoughtful site, and who could resist the most recent post:
Jane Grigson’s “Food With the Famous” is in my Top Ten cookbook rotation. I adored Laura Shapiro’s “Perfection Salad.” I swooned at Joanne Clevenger’s Thomas Jefferson Menu at Upperline in New Orleans. Suzie Evans’s take on food and history — with recipes!– will work its way into your kitchen and your family’s history lessons.
It’s a gorgeous, intelligent treat.
As I said, with recipes.
