As I trawled through the Colonial Williamsburg site in the first time in ages, I saw this and knew that both the foodies and history geeks here would love it:

http://recipes.history.org/

Basically, it's modernized versions of authentic Eighteenth Century recipes.  They show both versions on the page.

The most fun I had while active in the Society for Creative Anachronism involved "period cooking," either using already-redacted recipes (like those from "Take a Thousand Eggs") or redacting some myself (from a 15th-century Dutch cookbook). History is DELICIOUS.

They do awesome documentation.

A related project, for more medieval recipes - a couple of people are cooking the meals found on G.R.R. Martin's _Songs of Fire and Ice_ series, and posting about them. They're usually doing a historical medieval recipe, and then a more modernised version, and talking about the differences. Great recipes, and lovely pictures.
