New Entry from "The Cold Table" : Otzi's Last Meal

Remember the 5,000-year-old corpse found in the Alps a few decades ago? We now know what his last meal was. Bacon. Bacon jerky, to be precise. I talk about an article reporting on that here.

New entry from "The Cold Table" --Historical Vinegar

Ever wonder how the vinegar Roman cooks used in their cuisine differ from the sour stuff we buy at the supermarket? British "food archaeologist" Alan Coxon thinks he knows. In addition to being a chef, and proselytizer for Britain and food, he makes and sells vinegars based upon his historical research. I talk about his site on my blog. Go here for the entry.
