Deliver Your News to the World Offers Blast From the Culinary Past


New website focuses on old-fashioned recipes.

Montreal, Canada (February 17, 2011) – In a world where chefs are reaching rock-star status, and increasing focus is put on food presentation and originality, one may wonder whatever happened to plain old apple pie.

“I guess trends like molecular gastronomy and fusion cuisine have their place, but I think I speak for many of us when I say that when I’m cooking, I look for something simple, unpretentious and most of all tasty,” says Bernard Lewis, founder of “So I did some research and collected a treasure trove of great recipes – dating from the eighteen-hundreds right up to the turn of the century - that were all but forgotten.”

The new site compiles these gems, all from a time when “sugar” and “fat” were not bad words, and when trends were still about petticoats and not about food. Readers may be surprised by some outdated measurements such as “a gill of milk”, but this, according to Lewis, is half the fun. “You have to do a bit of detective work with some of these recipes, and I love that. You’re not just following instructions, you’re also learning a lot.”

Although newly launched, the site is already getting a steady stream of visitors searching for old fashioned cakes, breads and soups. But one can also find more unusual fare, such as terrapin or even squirrel recipes.

The site is updated regularly, and visitors are encouraged to submit and share their own family recipes.
