My food history library

I currently own 10 books on food history, where a few of them are cookbooks from the time period. My mom just gifted me three more from her collection. There is a good mix of books in Danish and in English. I thought it would be fun and useful to have a list of the books I own. I also borrow everything I can think of from my local library via inter-library loans. I love libraries! I got quite a few of those books on my wish list this year.

Rijksmuseum’s collection of art

rijkAt the Dutch museum, The Rijksmuseum’s website you can explore a huge part of their collection in detail. The art is there for you to zoom around on and to save on your computer – in a rather large resolution. I find my self on there way more than I should be. I have created a little board of paintings that shows food from the period I am interested in (late medieval to early modern). The collection is searchable and every single painting has all it’s infomation there. The photo quality is really good and you can zoom in quite far. I find that is a great resource to see the what food looked like – both the produce and the finished product.

How to Be a Victorian

Author: Ruth Goodman
Genre: Nonfiction, history, everyday history

Spring has been a bit hectic and I have not had a lot of excess energy to write reviews. I have been reading a stack of book but I it has been kind of quiet here. I was in London in Marts with my sister and we had a great trip. You can see my pictures on pinterest. On our way home we went through Gatwick airport and went into the airport bookstore. I couldn’t find any fiction I wanted to read, but I did pick up How to Be a Victorian.

The very short review is: I love it – it is so engaging!

The fork used as a lucet
The fork used as a lucet

As I have mentioned before I am going to Drachenfest later this month. It is one of the world biggest LARPs and is located in Germany. I have never been to a larp bigger than 50 people, it is going to be a bit overwhelming. Part of what I like about larps is the excuse e to dress up. I have constructed my own costume with the help of friends and family. Thank you Ingerlise and thank you Kitte, I could not have done it without you.
