The recipes, from the officers' kitchens in the Fort, take you back to a time when food was truly local. The 30 recipes include the original, historic recipe as well as its modern equivalent. Each recipe is introduced by an explanation of why it was chosen, how it would have been used at the Fort in the past and how it is used at the Fort today.
