This is alternately cheeky and disgusting...and, in at least one case, both.

A frequently humorous examination of Victorian dining as experienced by the modern palate. A fun and information look at period foods, for those who aren't easily grossed out.

(And when I say disgusting, I mean disgusting. Diet-inducing level.)

Note to readers and Mods:  I had debated posting this one to Anatomical. Thoughts?

Ooo, that whole series was excellent. As well as the Victorian, of specific interest to readers here may be Regency (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfxO76PyegI) and Edwardian (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABG1c0BFBS4&list=PLLaqxeaMjBH3RLOm1j6H5D919uXx3SKK7).

Yours,
Miranda.

I'm probably going to get around to checking those out sometime in the next couple of weeks.

I enjoyed it as well but I would also like to point out that the purpose of having so much food to serve your guests was not to eat everything but for the conspicuous consumption of offering choice: of being able to afford more than you need.

It is a fun look at food though.

I don't know what it is but I want tipsy cake..... <looks up tipsy cake>

"fresh sponge cakes soaked in good sherry and good brandy.

Ruddy hell. Maybe this is the test of the new middle class.
Slam them full of alcohol and see if they make tits of themselves.

I notice they did rich Victorians (no slumming it for our intrepid historians) That menu goes a little differently.....

Over work, gin, gin, gin, meat, syphilis, death.

Giles Coren, clever but a bit of an arse. A kindred spirit in many ways so naturally I can't stand the man. Cheesy

Or like storyteller Fred Pellerin will say, misery at each meal.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
