Enjoy a little Restoration this holiday season.

What will you serve for Christmas dinner? Ham? Turkey? Roast beef? Why not really impress the family and whip up a traditional Restoration dish? Imagine the kids' faces when you bring to the table a nice marinated conger eel garnished with ellicksander. Your children will beg you for broccoli.

During this busy season, don't forget to take time out for yourself. Why not curl up with a cup of cocoa and a good book? Perhaps Samuel Pepys' confessional diary? It's stuffed full of stories about his affairs, the great fire of London and plague-pits.

Or how about something from the lesser known Roger Morrice? Bishops in the bawdy house! An Italian eunuch performing at Whitehall!

I love interesting history.
