HFF 2016 Recap

Thank you for joining us on our first (and come to find out only) year of Historical Food Fortnightly.  It was a crazy experience.  Often we weren't on schedule or even in the correct order, but our whole crew made a good go of it and had fun too.  Even though HFF is no longer in existence, we will continue to share recipes as we learn and expand our cookbooks for the Green Whale.  Hopefully you've enjoyed yourself as well and might venture to try some of our experiments, or some of your own in the future.
