My Story

Those who know me best know I am obsessed with all things 18th Century. Previously I was known by my award winning blog where I translated old French cookbooks for use by French Colonial Reenactors.  Imagine my delight when I discovered an 18thC Century French Apothecary was also included in one of the volumes of La Nouvelle Maison Rustique or The New Rustic House, by Louis Liger, first published in 1700.

The Apothecary, or Apothicairerie  as it is known in France, contains almost two hundred everyday and lesser known herbs, many of  which are still in use by today’s herbalists. The list is an ongoing translation project to include period illustrations and herbal information. Notes from Culpeper, Pliny, Dodonée, Galen and other ancient herbalists will be included as available.
