Greetings, everyone! The list is so quiet, I'm guessing we've all gone to ground, dealing with summer heat? or maybe it's pre-Pennsic panic? Here in Northern Artemisia, it's definitely the former and not the latter! We're breaking heat records right and left--I suppose I should be grateful it's a dry heat, huh?
At any rate, when it gets *this* freaking hot, the last thing I find myself wanting to do is heat up the kitchen, so I got to thinking about summer foods, which led, of course, to me thinking about *historical* summer foods. Now, I can think of a couple of specific-to-a-season recipes in the Anonymous Andalusian cookbook, but I wondered if anyone's come across similar recipes in other cultures--foods to promote cooler humors, or summer foods, etc.?
I'd like to have a small collection of them for my own use, and I think they'd make a neat article for my local newsletter....
