Pies mean Thanksgiving and Christmas and picnics. Janet Clarkson, Pie: A Global History
From Ms. Clarkson’s own blog site The Old Foodie: I am enthusiastic about food and food history, and love to write about it. Every weekday I give you a short story on a food history topic – always including at least one historic recipe, and sometimes a historic menu. And how much fun is that!
I began this blog on October 31, 2005, with the intention of posting every Monday to Friday (including holiday days) without fail. I am proud to say I have not missed a day – and by the end of 2014 will have written over 2,500 posts! More often than not, more than one recipe is included (sometimes quite a few more) so the recipe count is in the many thousands.
I am the author of several books with a food history theme, and hope you read and enjoy them too!
Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
