  • About
Traditional farmhouse recipes have travelled widely. The families who left Europe to settle in America, Africa and Australia took with them centuries-old recipes and cooking methods, and adapted them to the conditions and the raw materials they found in their new homes. Sometimes they kept to the old ways and the old recipes long after we did. So not only do similar dishes appear in dozens of countries, but the cooking methods used by our ancestors are still used elsewhere. Thus we can re-create some of our favourite dishes of the past.
