How do I join?

We don't have any stringent membership requirements.  If you're interested in learning more about any aspect of period cookery, you are welcome.  You can participate at any level you wish, whether as a researcher, a cook, a taste-tester, or just a good pair of hands in the kitchen.  Or maybe you just want to provide moral support (goodness knows there are times when our morals can use all the support they can get!).  Whatever your level of activity, if you're interested in what we're doing, we encourage you to join.

There are a couple of ways you can become active in The Stewpot.  One is to join our discussion list at eGroups.  Just send an e-mail to This is where we'll be discussing our upcoming activities.

The other way is to find us at an event and just hang out with us.  If you don't have e-mail, this is another good way to find out what we've got planned for the near future.  Come chat with us, share your pointers, or ask questions.  We'll probably even feed you, if we decide you look hungry.
