The Georgians: What they ate


This is wonderfully interesting to me, so thought some of you might enjoy it as well. It’s from my friend and wonderful author, Regan Walker’s blog. Please check it out. I get up every morning intending to post something new on here, but alas, I become so overwhelmed by all the small Things in Life I must do first. I’ve come to the conclusion that there just aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything done that I’d really like to do…i.e. Reading, more writing – poetry usually, working with my plants (oh, btw we have a little fox family that lives just down the road) photography and studying the art of digital manipulation to enhance my shots. NOW, go read about the Georgian Era, the food will surprise you!

All Things Georgian

Once again we are absolutely delighted to welcome a return guest to our blog, the lovely Regan Walker, who has  written another fascinating article for us. This time she has looked at a subject which is very close to our hearts – food!

While doing research for my story, To Tame the Wind, the prequel to my Agents of the Crown trilogy, I was reminded how well the Georgians ate, even in the 18th century, particularly if they were people of means and had access to a large country garden.

      Sorry John… My computer finally died and I’m on this tiny little thing that I can hardly see. Lol. I’ve been bust trying to get my old house repainted so I can sell it as soon as possible. Hubby isn’t helping cuz he is so busy at work. 😕 I’m usually over there all day 5 days a week. When it sells, I get to buy a new computer… I hope. Hope you are still improving! I’ll try to catch up as soon as I finish that dumb, old, house. Blessings ~

    My family was of German Bohemian ancestry so they understood food. Those German Bohemian weddings were some of the best 30-day food festivals ever!

      Wow, I bet so! My hubby’s family is from Germany, okay… Well his mother and her family are/were Germans. His fathers family was Huron Indian from Michigan so I got a “humdinger of a hubby…lol. I stay on his good side. Lol. I love Bohemian crystal though. I’ve never had their food that I know of, but their artistry is stunning.
