A Dinner Cooked 1807 Style

Watch Justine cook a meal the way it would have been prepared 200 years ago. She’s making steak pie, mustard greens, and macaroni and cheese, but with no stove, no electricity, and no running water. Since she is used to cooking in a fireplace, she has a few pieces of specialized equipment to make it possible. While this video is serene and relaxing, I would suggest going under the settings and speeding it up to 1.5x or maybe even 2x normal speed. There is no voiceover, so the speed doesn’t matter -until you get to the end, where they show the original printed receipts (recipes). The macaroni and cheese especially is rather timeless in its ingredients, but heating a lid in the fire to make a broiler seems like a lot of trouble to us modern folks. This does appear to be a simple but yummy meal. -via Laughing Squid
