    This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.

    Christiana Campbell's serves these wonderful little muffins with every meal. At one time, they handed out this recipe on little cards (that's where i got mine). A reviewer reminded me: these are butt ugly. In Williamsburg, perfect little bite-sized muffins are served, all nice and puffy. When I made them, and the reviewer also, they were NOT puffy. They taste really good, but for some peculiar reason, they fall after coming out of the oven. If anyone makes them, and can figure this mystery out, please share. I have no clue why they come out different at home than they do in Williamsburg.

    Cleopatra (69 a.C - 30 a.C), the Egyptian queen of legendary beauty, was famous for her amatorial charms that rendered her irresistible to the men who met her. She had a child with Caesar, Cesarione, then, after Caesar's assassination she fell in love with Anthony causing much jealousy amongst the Roman Senators many of whom accused her of being a witch. Anthony, stabbed by Octavius, dies in her arms and Cleopatra, realising her end was near lets herself be poisoned by an asp. This recipe has been deciphered from a hieroglyphic. These sweets were served at wedding banquets and given their high energy value, we imagine that Cleopatra offered them to her lovers to restore their spirits.

    Recipe #31277

    I have translated this from The English Huswife by Gervase Markham 1615 AD. It's unusual in that before this time pies were almost always made with a single crust while this one has two. Often a two crusted pie was called a coffin in that time period. Rosewater can be found in most healthfood stores or Middle Eastern groceries in the US.

    Recipe #108169

    My version of the Basic Meat Pie from www.godecookery.com. I've successfully made this three times.

    Recipe #8680

    This bread dates back to Colonial days. Made from rye and wheat flours, cornmeal, molasses and raisins. Boston Brown Bread is always steamed (rather than baked) in a large can or mold. It is traditionally served along with a steaming plate of Boston Baked Beans.

    Recipe #6677

    This recipe dates back to Victorian England. the cookies are intended to be quite bland; add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla before adding milk if you desire. originally from "1001 Cookie Recipes".

    I love afternoon tea and sometimes enjoy a "tea" instead of eating dinner. This has been a favorite Victorian recipe for many years. The sweet and savory combination of flavors is wonderful.

    Recipe #25107

    Make a Victorian Sandwich Sponge cake, the original British way (very few ingredients needed).

    Recipe #75917

    Very tasty, with a distinctive texture. Great for Thanksgiving! American colonists in the Northeast used all available food sources- acorn bread is an adaptation of a Native American recipe which was somewhat common in the late 17th century until the mid 19th among the poorer working classes.

    Recipe #71702

    This from The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines by Jeff Smith. Very rich sauce, great with pasta and be sure to have the ever handy crusty bread available. If it is too rich for you try adding a can of chopped tomatoes to thin it out. We have always used oxtails in stews, etc and find this recipe to be right up our alley.

    Recipe #52470

    This recipe appeared on the Quaker Oats box in 1908 and again from 1909 to 1913. It's hearty and grainy, delicious topped with cheese, cinnamon-sugar butter, or served with soup. Original directions didn't specify an oven temperature, so I selected 450.

    Recipe #111638

    Posted in response to a request for an authentic one pound pound cake...this recipe is from a cookbook, dated 1896

    Salmagundi was the chef's salad of 18th century England. In present day England and in Colonial Williamsburg, the name has been revived. My mother enjoyed serving this as a main course for dinner. We always liked it!

    Recipe #57929

    I enjoyed my recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, and had a wonderful dinner at Christiana Campbell's Tavern. Our meals were accompanied by this spoon bread, scooped right out of the griddle and onto our plates. Absolutely delicious!

    Recipe #113636

    This is truly wonderful even for modern pallets. We had a medieval pot luck party and this was the hit of the night. I wouldn't have minded curling up with the whole pot myself! It is adapted from an Elizabethan recipe for quelquechose (kickshaws), a type of add anything you like casserole. The oyster-lamb combination is an Elizabethan favorite used in the cookbook "To The Queens Taste".

    Recipe #33984

    This is a modern(relatively speaking) version of a Medieval Germanic recipe. While living in Germany, I first tried these unusual cold pizza-style open face sandwiches at a fair in Bonn while celebrating the "Rhine in Flames." Clara12 has a recipe posted on Recipezaar for homemade Krauterfladenbrot recipe #61947 ,the herbed flatbreads used as the "crust" in this recipe(which I have tried and used in this recipe successfully). You may also use any herb flecked soft, doughy flatbread that you have available - they should be rounds the size of a pita bread. Heck - you could probably get away with using an uncut pita(in which case use the whole pita as your crust for each -don't split) if that's all you have available - I'd go for honey wheat flavor, if so. Please try to use sweet onions in this as regular onions can be a little too strong - you will be eating the onions raw, so it is up to you how much oniony sharpness you prefer. Try to cut the onions as wafer thin as possible and then into slivers. Please use real bacon and fresh herbs - although there is a brand(Hormel) of real bacon that comes precrumbled in a bottle that may use(not Bacon Bits). Measurements are estimates - season these to your liking. Cook time is chilling time for the onion sauce - there is no actual cooking involved.

    Recipe #62336

    Found in old British cookbook, don't expect anyone to make this but just interesting.

    Recipe #18330

    Originally this is a Victorian breakfast dish, which traveled from India to the UK. The main ingredients were rice, haddock and eggs. I have added more ingredients to the recipe over the years and now it is a one dish lunch or main course, which is quick and very tasty.
