Mostly they are modern recipes. Not too many of us do redactions. 
I'd've submitted Digby's Cheese, but as I use Cariadoc's redaction, 
it didn't seem right (G). There are some redactions, and a lot of 
yummy recipes, including some nice liqueur recipes. It is _not_ your 
normal community cookbook. There are over 100 contributors from 
Oerthans and friends of Oertha.

You don't have to worry about seal meat in this one: most of us are 
urban immigrants, not Native Alaskans.

I'll forward your request to Viscountess Caitriona, the primary 
'pusher' of the cookbook.
