Daughter Needs Help for School

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My daughter is trying to find information about the kinds of cooking utensils that were used in Colonial America. I have done many searches, but there seems to be very little information to be found on line. Are there any experts here that can point me to some appropriate sites?:)

Thanks in advance from Desperate Dad!

You'll find a few pictures here: http://www.replitiques.com/history.html

This site has many old techniques for bread making etc; follow the links and you might get some pictures. http://waltonfeed.com/old/index.html

Good luck to both of you!

Try contacting places where they have working colonial villages - Like Williamsburg, Va., Charleston, S.C., etc. Food Network did a Christmas special in Williamsburg, where they cooked a meal with colonial implements. Good luck!

Huh?

What ever happened to going to the library?
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

Re: Huh?

Good point Peachcreek, but sometimes the library just doesn't have the materials for some topics.

I just want to thank the people that helped! I appreciate your thoughtfulness. As far checking out a library, I would have, except the assignment specifically indicated she was to find the resources on-line, not in a book. I love libraries. I even married a librarian who is the daughter of a librarian.

It seems in every forum, there always people who aren't interested in helping others.

I know there is at least one person here whom you should never ask to borrow a cup sugar!

Thanks to all the knowledgeable people who took the time to respond. http://www.cheftalkcafe.com/ubb/wink.gif
