Hey, yíall. Iíve been lurking here for several months, and figured itís time to sign up.

Iím Brook. Been camp cooking all my life, on everything from open fires to propane and backpacking stoves. The past few decades Iíve taken a giant step backwards. My wife and I are living historians with expertise on 18th century foodways. So much so that weíve written two cookbooks on the subject (A Colonial Virginia Book of Cookery, and A Colonial Virginia Book of Cookery Second Table). Which, of course, are all about live-fire cooking.

Anyone interested can reach us at historicfoodways@hotmail.com.

We also spent a couple of seasons as foodways interpreters at Fort Boonesboro SP, here in Kentucky, where we demonstrated all facets of period foodways, from designing and managing historic gardens, to cooking demos over open fires, to preparing group meals at special events.

Still and all, Iíve learned a lot just by lurking here, and figure I can learn even more while, hopefully, contributing insights from my own experiences.

I do have one question right off: How come Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia are listed as part of the Northeast? Thinking

Appreciate the welcome, guys.

Aggroman, all my pix are slides. I don't even own a digital camera, and wouldn't know how to post photos if I did. Ya know what they say: you can't do high tech with a low tech mind. Sad

Hello Foodie.
Welcome to the group, I have been here for a couple years now, but don't find a lot of time to post. I live in the Bluegrass too residing in Lexington. Maybe we will run across each other. Do you collect cast iron cookware?

Collect, Bob? Not in any formal sense. When I come across I piece I like/want/need I try and purchase it. But every one of the CI pieces I own (a couple of dozen, I'd say) is used; either in the house or in the field.

Contrary to popular imagination, though, CI isn't the only cookware material used in the 18th century. I have replica pieces made of tinware, hammered iron, and ceramic as well. Although I don't have any, due to cost, brass and copper were also used for cookware
