Dear readers, I’m back. Here to say I haven’t forgotten you and hope you haven’t forgotten me. More important, I haven’t forgotten about food history. This week I have a piece in American Food Roots on 19th-century Capitol HIll ‘s culinary history. No, I’m not talking about forerunners of the trendy Hill restaurants that have been getting a lot of national attention lately. I’m referring to the food served at the boardinghouses where members of Congress lodged. Read all about it here.
