    I have just found this blog, but believe I am in love with it. I am a hobbyist Food Historian and these links might prove very helpful because I need materials for my anthologies. I work on creating historic research guides on BiblioBoard and have published Archiving Taste, am still working on Food and Folklore and am trying to find food maps for the next anthology. So naturally, I did a happy dance when I found Carte Gastromique de la France from 1809.
