The Cook and the Curator is a wonderful blog published by Sydney Living Museums.
Sydney Living Museums cares for a group of 12 of the most important historic houses, gardens and museums in NSW.
Formerly the Historic Houses Trust of NSW, the new identity was launched in 2013 and attempts to:
…bring our museums to life through a dynamic and diverse program of exhibitions, research and events such as walks, talks and tours so that our visitors can experience Sydney’s past as if they had lived it themselves.
We’ll comb through old cookery books, decipher handwritten recipes, experiment with heirloom produce, rediscover lost culinary arts, and reveal family stories. We’ll also show you how to blend exotic spices, whip up apple snow, make gelatine from calves’ feet (if you dare!) and lay the perfect Regency table – and this is just a portion of what’s on our menu.
