What do you want to learn to make? What is in your pantry that you need to use?
I have studied food history and nutrition extensively and have collected recipes from all over the world and this site is all about sharing with those who are stuck at home, some of you cooking for the first time, some on very tight budgets, and some of you may be searching for something your grandmother made.
I have an unusual speciality Forensic recipe reconstruction and it can involve remembered tastes and textures or recipes written in an unfamiliar format to those today. For instance….”Gather as many eggs as you can if you have a normal household flock or just two days worth from the family hens if you are on a farm.” This came from a ‘Wisconsin housewife’ who was writing in a time when everyone it seemed kept chickens. I have to find out what a normal flock was in her community, along with a ‘portion of butter’ a ‘measure of flour’ etc. It was enormous fun to re-assemble.
Another job was a man who could not get the ‘taste’ right for his grandmother’s fried chicken. He watched her make it, knew all the seasonings and fried it in Crisco just like she did and it was not the same.
All I had to do was ask if her crisco was kept in the cupboard or on the back of the stove. It turns out like so many women of her time she was using bacon grease to fry it in. Once he made that one change the taste righted itself.

I may be doing some webinar events and taking questions in real time and it is important to me to know what can best help you?
