Hi everyone – love the podcast and finally joined the site. Favorite British time periods – Early Middle Ages and the Victorian period. Studied Irish history at Trinity College and have a BA in Political Science, later a MA in Education leading to a teaching career in the public school system. Currently, I'm a stay at home mom who loves experimenting with historic recipes. My favorites are traditional Christmas puddings and gingerbreads. I must say thought that my father makes a mean haggis – who knew sheep stomach could be so delicious! This summer I look forward to attempting some homemade wines. If anyone has some suggestions or advice, please let me know!
