Cooking Through The Centuries

Cooking Through The Centuries is a cookbook, not a recipe book. Although we have included around 415 recipes, the number one goal of Cooking Through The Centuries is to show how our ancestors and the Native Americans survived without gas stoves, ovens, and refrigerators.

   In order to do this we have taken excerpts from Journals, cookbooks, and magazine from as far back as the 1600s. These Folks has to cook over open fires and use fresh or preserved foods.

   In a long term survival situation we will find ourselves in much the same situation. Who better to learn from than our ancestors and Native Americans ? You will find that they not only survive but, in most cases, lived very well using these methods. In many ways they actually better than we do today.
