Welcome to my new “food blog”.
I'm completely entranced by food. I love to cook it, I love to eat it, and I love to read about it. If I won the lottery tomorrow and could do whatever I wanted to, I'd go back to school and get a degree in culinary history.
I'm also very interested in nutrition, probably stemming from the fact that my mom has been teaching and learning about nutrition for the last 30 years or so. I think that many of the problems that plague our society and our world stem from food, either the lack of it, or the commercialization of it. So many of the health problems in this country (U.S) stem from the fact that people don't eat right.
On the historical front, I'm active in the SCA, and do my best to recreate times gone by, specially the Viking Age in Scandinavia. I've been working for several years now on trying to piece together the kinds of food that the Vikings ate, what they cooked it with/on, etc.
Look to see all kinds of ramblings here about food, nutrition, recreating historical foods, and anything else I can think of that relates. I wanted to separate this content from my other blog, which I'd like to reserve for more work related (although not exclusively) stuff.
