Junior Food Historians?

Hands On!

July seems to be the month for history camps.  It is a pleasure for me to work with children at the hearth and have them use my food history tools.  In this picture, I have four young ladies very intent on whisking an egg with a birch twig whisk, preparing salt in a brass mortar and pestle, grating nutmeg and grinding flour.   I think back to when my interest in cooking, food, and food history really started-it was before I was ten years old!  These experiences create memories that provide an association with the sources of food, an appreciation for antiques, and maybe just perhaps-another future food historian!
