In this section of the website, we will be exploring the contact and mission eras of La Florida's past through the diets of the various cultures involved.  We will also be learning about food production, including experimental gardening,  use of herbal medicines, and the actual techniques of food preparation and storage.  A big focus of the section will be the recreation of authentic dishes, both  using period methods (over fire) as well as more modern techniques (electric stoves and ovens), so that one will be able to prepare authentic dishes at a reenactment or host an unique dinner party at home for their friends (authenticity, the new twist on "spanish night" for supper).
