There is a show on PBS called A Taste of History which shows how
cooking was done several hundred years ago. They cook with a lot
of fresh vegetables over a hearth fire and go around New England
looking at Historic landmarks. On one episode it showed how
gardeners used cold frames and glass globes to extend the growing
season throughout the winter. You might find it interesting.
Episodes can be seen at http://www.atasteofhistory.com/index.html
There are also a few episodes on Youtube.
If you found that interesting then you might also find "Tales from the Green
It's about a group of archaelogists and social historians who live and work
for a full year in a Welsh farm and Welsh long house with only the facilites
they would have had in the time of James I.
The food looks to be good even if through the winter they use a lot of dried
beans. the show is much more than just aobut cooking though as they also
have to plough and plant wheat, kill and preserve a pig, thatch a cow sahd
build a new privy and do lots of other farming and household chores as if
they are going to continue living forever in this place:
